Judge dismisses suit against Native corp.


Posted: Friday, May 02, 2003

ANCHORAGE - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against a Native corporation in Goodnews.

Goodnews River Lodge sued Kuitsarak Inc. in December because the Native corporation wanted to end a 25-year lease between the two.

U.S. District Judge John Sedwick dismissed the suit, saying there is no federal jurisdiction for the case. The complaint is based on state law, and Sedwick said U.S. District Court is not the right place to bring the lawsuit.
