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.
