Oyster farm to ask US Supreme Court to hear case

Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO -

The owner of a popular Northern California oyster farm says he'll ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his case challenging a federal decision not to renew the facility's lease.

Kevin Lunny, owner of Drakes Bay Oyster Co., made the announcement Tuesday after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it wouldn't reconsider his case.

The oyster company in the Point Reyes National Seashore has remained open since former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar in 2012 refused to renew its lease. Salazar cited a 1976 congressional decision to return the waters of Drakes Estero to wilderness status.

The farm has since lost all of its appeals to overturn that decision.

Lunny says he remains committed to his fight.
