I don't have the order, but Pulaski Circuit Judge Jay Moody has dismissed Sheffield Nelson's lawsuit against the Game and Fish Conmmission alleging unconstitutional operation of the agency. He contended a committee system often gave power to three commissioners to control the agenda on which the full Commission voted.
Game and Fish had a comment:
Today, Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Jay Moody dismissed Sheffield Nelson’s lawsuit against the AGFC. The ruling ends a nearly one-year legal battle. The following is a comment from AGFC Director Loren Hitchcock.
Hitchcock comment on dismissal of Nelson’s lawsuit against the AGFC:
"We are pleased with Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Jay Moody’s dismissal of Sheffield Nelson’s lawsuit against the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Now that we have a ruling, it’s time to move on and focus on conserving the resources of our great state."
