Several folks have asked Deckboss when they can expect checks from the Carlson case.
As you'll recall, the Carlson case was a long-running class action that resulted in the state being ordered to refund millions of dollars to nonresident commercial fishermen overcharged for permits and licenses.
It appeared refund checks might go in the mail before year's end, but that didn't happen.
Loren Domke, the Juneau attorney for the fishermen plaintiffs, today provided an update.
"The first batch of over 2,200 checks will be sent out tomorrow," he said.
Some problems including "accounting issues" took longer to sort out than expected, Domke said.
But the payout will come well within the specified four-month deadline from the court's mid-October disbursement order, he said.
