Note that James M. Rosenbaum (http://www.mnd.uscourts.gov/MDL-Mirapex/judge-james-rosenbaum.shtml) was appointed as Minnesota's 25th Federal Judge by President Ronald Reagan, taking his oath on July 19, 1985. Republican President Reagan's appointment continues to help destroy the Great Lakes and the nation's waters long after Reagan's James Watt anti-environmental revolution.
Minnesota and Wisconsin conservation groups have been rebuffed in their effort to force the federal government to regulate ships' ballast water to stop the spread of a fish-killing disease. Federal Judge James Rosenbaum has dismissed a case brought by the groups against the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Coast Guard. http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/event/article/id/115090/
