The deadline to put in Carlson claims has been extended.
Carlson was a class-action case that resulted in an order for millions of dollars in refunds to be paid to nonresidents who were charged excessive Alaska commercial fishing fees.
Refund payments began in January, and the deadline to apply for a refund passed a few days ago.
But now, a judge has ordered an extension of the deadline until midnight Dec. 31.
That's because new claims are still coming in, and the case administrator believes many class members haven't yet received word of the refund opportunity. Details here.
It appears more than $3 million is still up for grabs.
