A Drakes Bay Oyster Co. workers take a break from shucking oysters on September 4, 2013 in Inverness, California. Oyster farmer Kevin Lunny suffered another setback in his fight with the U.S. Park Service to renew the lease for his oyster farm that operates on Drakes Estero.


An oyster farm on the Northern California coast is taking its fight to stay open to the Supreme Court. It's the latest move in a years-long legal battle by Drakes Bay Oyster Company in Marin County.

The farm is located in a federally protected wilderness area, so the government ordered it shut down in 2012. Here to tell us more about the case is Bob Egelko, staff writer for the San Francisco Chronicle.
