Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox today announced his office has filed a notice of appeal from the first preliminary court ruling in his lawsuit to stop the advance of Asian carp into the Great Lakes. Attorneys general from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio and Pennsylvania signed on to Michigan’s notice, which was filed today in federal District Court in Chicago. The Great Lakes states are appealing a December 2, 2010 ruling that denied Michigan’s motion for preliminary injunction, which called for several immediate actions.
“Although our suit continues to move forward, the urgent threat that Asian carp pose requires that we aggressively pursue this preliminary injunction,” said Cox. “Until the federal government takes effective action, Michigan and our Great Lakes partners will take full advantage of every opportunity we have to ensure our livelihood is not destroyed by Asian carp.”
