Ohio Joins Carp Lawsuit

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Dec 24, 2009 7:30PM

Earlier this week came the news the State of Michigan filed a lawsuit to force the State of Illinois, the Army Corps of Engineers and Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago to shut the shipping locks and canals that feed into Lake Michigan. Now Ohio is jumping on the carp-lawsuit bandwagon, endorsing Michigan's lawsuit. WBEZ reports, "In a motion to the U.S. Supreme Court, Ohio's attorney general writes the Asian carp would be both ecologically and economically damaging to that state." The SCOTUS should take up the issue early in the new year.
