Michigan - Wealthy land owners who stake claim to property abutting the 3288 miles of shoreline along Michigan's Great Lakes, are attempting to extend there claims all the way to the water, excluding beach walkers legal access. The State Superior court has sided with the land owners and said that once beach walkers step foot out of the water they are trespassing. The state Supreme Court will hear the case on Tuesday and may overturn the ruling allowing beach enthusiasts to once again enjoy the shoreline up to the high water mark.
