E-M:/ From Judge Hathaway

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>

This from Judge Hathaway, who is running against 
Cliff Taylor for a seat on the Michigan Supreme Court.

Taylor is the judicial wreckor of the Michigan Environmental 
Protection Act....taken out by Taylor after nearly 40 years in 
effect on a specious federal jurisdictional argument.

Why We Need a Change in the Supreme Court for Our Environment
Examples of Cliff Taylor decisions that have harmed Michigan?s environment: 
The Michigan Environmental Protection Act (1973) gave citizens rights and power to protect the environment and to stop pollution and destruction to the environment. Cliff Taylor restricted the right to sue to those who can show they or their property has been harmed. <http://www.stignacenews.com/news/2007/0802/Columns/024.html>More Information
Taylor also voted in favor of corporate polluters and made it harder for people to hold accountable big corporations that cause sickness and death, and that are harming the environment by dumping cancer-causing waste (dioxin) into the state. <http://www.detnews.com/2005/metro/0507/21/B07-254188.htm>More information
A Statement From Diane Hathaway on the Environment
Our Great Lakes, rivers and streams define Michigan. They are part of our culture and make us who we are as a people. That's why we need a Supreme Court that will be fair and impartial ? not one that will side with big corporations eager to sell our water for profit. We need a Supreme Court that will follow the law, not throw out our state's 30-year environmental protection act to benefit big corporations at our expense.  Michigan citizens deserve a Supreme Court Justice who upholds our laws and protects our Great Lakes from corporate polluters and those who would profit from the sale of our water.
