1. As I have said before, lawyers who would like to review Public Rights on Rivers can call 719.579.8759 to request it. (There is no dodging or evasion involved.)

2. Thank you, River Mamma, for the eye witness account. We are very grateful to the rangers who made the best of the unlawful river closure policy imposed on them during the “shutdown” by politicians and political appointees in Washington.

3. The cases I have worked on regarding river access were settled out of court. (Cases I have worked on in other areas of river law were decided by a judge.) The idea that current river access disputes need to be decided by a judge is common among river users, but misguided. Most river access disputes can and should be settled out of court. Public Rights on Rivers gives river users a key tool for doing so, and explains how to do so. That’s what we are encouraging river users to do, nationwide.

4. Regarding whether Public Rights on Rivers is “on the right track,” we’ll let you know as “peer review” of some sort becomes available. Meanwhile, the book is available in its present form. It lists federal decisions regarding river law in chronological order and explains what the dispute was and what the court concluded (which can be readily verified online.) It contains very little personal opinion, so in actual practice, whether it is “on the right track” is not much of an issue. It’s a key resource for river users in any event. – Eric Leaper.
