Civil Forfeiture


“Section 44-12-203(3), MCA (2013), denied Chilinski the right to be tried by a jury, in violation of the guarantee to trial by jury provided by Article II, Section 26 of the Montana Constitution. The District Court erred when it denied Chilinski the right to a trial by jury in these civil in rem forfeiture proceedings. We reverse and remand for a new trial consistent with this Opinion.”

Superfund site / Fish, Wildlife and Parks Fees




“On October 13, 2016, the Fish and Wildlife Commission approved proposed changes to the fee schedule for the Biennial Fishing Access Site Rule. Under the proposed changes, the camping fees at Fishing Access Sites will be raised from $7 to $12 for fishing-license holders, and from $12 to $18 for non-license holders. If approved, this fee increase would be the first time since 2002 that the cost of camping fees at FASs has been raised.”
