On the Road: Law Court to hear case in Houlton

Supreme Court Justices will be at Houlton High School on Oct. 10. On Thursday, the Law Court will hear the case of Erik Wuori vs. Travis Otis. On Dec. 10, 2018, a judgment was issued against Travis Otis in Belfast District Court in the amount of $60,000 plus interest and costs. In the case out of Waldo County, the district court ordered Otis to turn over his 36-foot-long boat to Wuori.. Otis is appealing, arguing that his use of the boat to fish for lobster in closed or restricted waters to obtain data from each lobster for research purposes, for which he is paid, constitutes “commercial fishing,” thereby making his boat exempt from the claims of creditors.  >click to read< 10:53
