The state must pay $95,000 in attorney fees to Friends of Animals for a lawsuit the Connecticut-based animal-rights group won last year that temporarily halted Alaska’s controversial predator control program, according to a decision by an Anchorage Superior Court judge last week.
Superior Court judge Sharon Gleason ruled Friday that the state is responsible for attorney fees incurred by Friends of Animals for a lawsuit the group filed in November 2003 that was decided last January.
The decision was confirmed by state officials and representatives for Friends of Animals.
“It’s very good news,” said FOA executive director Priscilla Feral by phone from Connecticut.
