The U.S. Supreme Court agreed on June 12 to review the following case. Energy and Natural Resources Does Alaska or the federal government have title to areas within the Tongass National Forest and the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve? Alaska v. U.S., 128 Original. The justices invoked the court’s “original jurisdiction” and said they will referee the dispute before it is aired in any lower court. Alaska also is asking the court to decide who holds the title to submerged lands along the Alexander Archipelago, a group of more than 1,000 islands over an area of nearly 600 miles in Southeast Alaska. Holding title would give the state the right to regulate activities in the water above those submerged lands, notably commercial fishing.
