MONDAY, MAY 20, 2002

A federal judge in Washington on Friday refused to halt the Makah Nation's whale hunt until a lawsuit filed by animal-rights activists can be heard.

U.S. District Judge Franklin Burgess said the tribe's rights under an 1855 treaty outweigh the activists' complaints. He declined to extend a 10-day temporary injunction into a permanent one.
