Re: E-M:/ Three Michigan Supreme Court Decisions

Enviro-Mich message from "Pete Pasterz" <ppasterz@pplant.msu.edu>

What's surprising about this?   The anti MEPA justices were/are the Michigan Chamber of Commerce- funded "non-partisan" candidates.    We need campaign finance reform as well as judicial review [appointment?] reform, or like the legislature, we'll end up with the best Supreme Court money can buy [and we know who has the money].

On July 30, 2004, the Michigan Supreme Court issued three major opinions that will have significant implications for environmental law in Michigan. The opinions also reveal a deep division among Justices in the Michigan High Court on critical environmental issues. We have posted a brief overview of each of the three cases with links to the full text opinions. 

See: http://www.ecobizport.com/SupremeCtMISR.html 

The cases are: National Wildlife Federation v. Cleveland Cliffs ; Preserve The Dunes v MDEQ ; and County of Wayne v Hathcock
