Federal judge rules in favor of website owner in dispute with Alaska governor

A federal judge has ordered Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s office to notify political writer Jeff Landfield of all news conferences he organizes.

Landfield, a three-time candidate for state Legislature, now operates the Alaska Landmine website. Earlier this month, Landfield sued the governor, seeking access to the governor’s news conferences and the ability to ask questions of the governor directly.

U.S. District Court Judge Joshua Kindred granted a temporary restraining order late Wednesday, finding that Landfield is likely to succeed in his lawsuit. Kindred has scheduled a hearing for Jan. 13 as he considers whether to grant Landfield a more permanent injunction.

“I credit everything to my lawyers,” Landfield said in a brief call.

Landfield ran as an independent and as a Republican for the state Legislature.
