A Massachusetts judge has ruled that legal matches, the practice of exchanging cash for fish and seafood, are legal.
LegalMatch, a site where people pay a small fee to get matched with a legal seafood provider, has been operating in Massachusetts for nearly a year.
The site says that the fees it charges are “a percentage of the total amount paid by users.”
It says that a legal match in Massachusetts can be worth $25 to $100.
However, that isn’t always the case.
For example, the legal match that LegalMatch says it pays for a fish is a legal tuna.
The fish is legal in New York, but it isn’t legal in Massachusetts.
The legal match will likely be the difference between legal and legal seafood, as many legal match services charge a fee for legal matches that can be up to $50.
But if you have to pay a legal fee, that’s okay too.
In the case of legal match with LegalMatch in Massachusetts, the judge found that the company complied with the state’s Fair Trade Act.
“The Court finds that the Defendants’ business practices are consistent with Fair Trade, as they are in all other states where the Defendants operate,” the ruling reads.
Legal Match’s owners, Peter and Susan E. Pomerantz, did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment.
The case will be appealed to the Massachusetts Supreme Court, and the outcome is expected to come down to the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the law.
