The Alaska Supreme Court will not reconsider a lower-court decision upholding Anchorage’s ability to put public health restrictions on restaurants.
The court issued a brief order on Wednesday denying a request for review filed by an attorney representing Little Dipper Diner.
On Aug. 10, Anchorage Superior Court Judge Erin Marston ruled that Little Dipper Diner had to comply with an order banning dine-in service at restaurants. That order has since been replaced, but the diner has continued to pursue the legal issues behind the original order.
After Marston declined a request for reconsideration, an attorney representing the diner asked the state high court in late September to take up the issue.
