>As the attorney for the plaintiff in Glass v Goeckel (the beach walking 
>case), I thought I'd update all of you who contacted me with emails of 
>support -- and there were many.
>You'll recall that the Mich Court of Appeals, in a 5/13/04 decision, ruled 
>that the public does not have the right to walk between the water's edge 
>and the high water mark on the shores of our Great Lakes (the 
>"foreshore").  Instead, members of the public must walk below the water's 
>edge or run the risk of trespass on the rights of riparian owners who, 
>according to the decision, have exclusive possession of the foreshores of 
>the Great Lakes.
>On Thursday, June 24, 2004, we filed a lengthy application for leave to 
>appeal with the Mich Supreme Court on behalf of plaintiff-appellant, Mrs. 
>Glass -- seeking peremptory reversal or vacating of the Court of Appeals 
>I thank all of you who called or wrote with heartfelt support.  I was 
>amazed at the power of enviro-mich in reaching so many people who care so 
>much about this issue.
