The Bohmker Case


The Bohmker Case: Your Assistance is Needed

The PLP board of directors is asking your help in order to have the United States Supreme Court hear Bohmker (et al) vs Oregon.

Bohmker vs Oregon is spearheaded by the Waldo Mining District and the Galice Mining District and seeks to challenge Oregon’s prohibition on all motorized placer mining in streams designated as essential salmon habitat. On September 12, 2018 the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the miners. As a result of that ruling, the miners filed a petition for review in the United States Supreme Court on January 21, 2019.
