After two years of investigating and litigating the exploration and temporary water use permits for the Pebble Project, the two-week trial closed on December 17, 2010.

Superior Court Judge Aarseth has begun his deliberations while the testimony is fresh in his mind, but deadlines for post-trial written submissions mean a ruling won’t be issued until March 2011, at the earliest. Trustees for Alaska recently submitted our post-trial brief and proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law.
