Michigan Loves Mining . . . Again

Vol. 27 No. 1

Mr. Malone is an associate attorney with Adkison, Need & Allen P.L.L.C. in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and a member of the editorial board of Natural Resources & Environment.

In July 2011, the Michigan legislature invalidated a Michigan Supreme Court ruling that found gravel mining not to be a preferred land use. Just one year before, the Michigan Supreme Court issued its opinion in Kyser v. Kasson Township, 786 N.W.2d 543 (Mich. 2010). In Kyser, the court held that a judicially created law for gravel mining was invalid.
