US Supreme Court to Decide Tomorrow if it will Hear Great Lakes Case

Tomorrow, the US Supreme Court will meet in a private session to decide if they will reopen the nearly century old case involving Illinois diversion of Lake Michigan water. Michigan and five other Great Lakes states have petitioned the court to hear the case because Asian carp have used the Chicago Sanitary and Shipping Canal to make their way toward the Great Lakes ecosystem. The court has twice rejected an injunction that would force the closure of the locks as a temporary way to stop the advancement of the invasive fish.

The Court will announce sometime next Monday whether or not they will hear the case.
