Oyster farm bid fails


The U.S. Supreme Court refused Monday to take up the case of a Marin County oyster farm facing eviction from the Point Reyes National Seashore in what a lead opponent of the commercial operation called “the end of the road for this company.”

Drakes Bay Oyster Co. owner Kevin Lunny struck a defiant position, however, and vowed to battle on, calling the high court’s pass on his petition “a disappointment, but not really a setback.”

“Today, we’ve been delivered news that’s disappointing, but we’ll get over it. It’s not the end,” Lunny said in a news conference hours after the high court made its decision public. “It’s not over until the last oyster’s shucked.”
