Associate Michele Hallowell co-authored the Ocean and Coastal Law Journal article, "Battle to Determine the Meaning of the Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation and Management Reauthorization Act of 2006: A Survey of Recent Judicial Decisions." The article discusses the litigation surrounding the Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation and Management Reauthorization Act of 2006 (Reauthorization Act). The regulated fishing community, non-governmental organizations and the government itself are still adjusting to the new regime. The battle to define the Reauthorization Act's terms will continue to provide clarity where Congress failed to do so.
