William Randall of Winthrop circulated a letter last summer that advised sportsmen not to cooperate with searches by state game wardens. The letter, which reached thousands, states that the advice it contained was sanctioned by the Maine Attorney General's Office. Attorney General Andrew Ketterer drafted a letter on October 3 stating that no attorney in his office sanctioned Randall's document. Assistant Attorney General Wayne Moss said that even though there is no legal precedent allowing game wardens to conduct a search, his office gives advice to the Warden Service based on a similar case decided two years ago by the Louisiana Supreme Court. Details.
