U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Michigan’s Asian Carp Argument for a Second Time

As reported previously on this blog, the State of Michigan renewed its request, last month, to the U.S. Supreme Court for a preliminary injunction that would have immediately closed Chicago-area locks to protect against Asian carp.  Today, the Supreme Court rejected that renewed motion in a one sentence order.

This does not mean that the court battle over Asian carp is over–far from it.  Although the Supreme Court ruled that a preliminary injunction is not warranted at this time, the Court could eventually rule on the merits that an injunction is appropriate.  It will just take a lot longer than Michigan and its allies would like.
