BP: Judge hears claim fish netting on northern Minnesota lake protected under 1855 treaty

 

September 7, 2018



BRAINERD, Minn. — It is now up to 9th Judicial District Judge Jana M. Austad to decide whether a 50-year-old Cloquet, Minn., man charged with illegally setting a gill net in Gull Lake is protected under the treaty rights drawn up between tribes and the U.S. government in 1855.

Austad, a judge based in Cass County, took over the case in August 2017 after four 9th Judicial District judges in Crow Wing County recused themselves.
