The Great Lakes Legal Foundation has filed a friend of the court brief in support of the petitioners in the Rock-Koshkonong Lake Dist. et al. v. DNR (2008AP1523) case on behalf of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce and the Midwest Food Processors Association.
The facts of the case involve a dispute between the Rock-Koshkonong Lake District and the DNR over state-controlled water levels at Lake Koshkonong. However, at issue in the case are fundamental questions about agency authority and the reach of the public trust doctrine.
