Alaska will pay $65,000 to settle lawsuit brought by political writer Jeff Landfield

JUNEAU — Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s office will grant political writer and website owner Jeff Landfield access to news conferences and pay him $65,000 to settle an ongoing lawsuit.

The settlement was revealed Tuesday as the state filed to dismiss the lawsuit, which Landfield brought in December. Landfield, the owner and operator of The Alaska Landmine, said he was unlawfully excluded from invitation lists to the governor’s news conferences.

“Having reached an amicable settlement of this lawsuit, and the related appeal, the parties stipulate to dismissal of this lawsuit, with prejudice,” the document states.

According to the full settlement agreement, “the parties agree that Mr. Landfield shall be provided the same access at gubernatorial press conferences as other members of the media.”
