E-M:/ Judge likely to withdraw protective Humbug Marsh Ruling or "it's not over yet"

Enviro-Mich message from "Karen D. Kendrick-Hands" <kdkhands@voyager.net>

The Detroit News reports that in an "unusual move" Wayne County Circuit
Court Judge Louis Simmons, Jr. has alerted attorneys that he will most
likely withdraw a ruling that developer, Made In Detroit Inc., infringed
on state land while clearing Gibraltar's Humbug Marsh site in December
of 1998.  According to the article, the development company was sued by
the state Attorney General's Office and the Department of Environmental
Quality after development workers cut brush and other vegetation from a
conservation easement.  The company countersued, saying that the workers
did no wrong by clearing the area in the land's buffer zone.
