(1) The islanders, like many Northeastern Lobstermen, have a property regime in place that is enforced by a series of acts against lobster traps that violate the rules, from simple marking of traps and intimidation of the violator to near total destruction of traps or boats.

(3) The shooting is related to a long standing dispute about which a non-islander brought pending conspiracy charges against a number of Matinicus residents, on the theory that the group planned destruction of his invasive traps. (4) Further complicating the story, the plaintiff in the conspiracy case alleges that the group of residents had conspired with state enforcement to enforce the property scheme, despite being recognized as unlawful. (5) If such a violent escalation is to be avoided, what property regime should be supported, and how can this result be generalized? I. Introduction
