An Ohio judge says private interests, but the Toledo Blade strongly disagrees -- nice editorial.
Never mind 15 centuries of legal precedent. A
northeast Ohio judge has conjured up a view of property rights that
could allow owners of homes and cottages along Lake Erie to keep the
public off the dry sand out front.
The judge says his view is "distinctively American." We call it "distinctively selfish."
If Lake Erie shrinks as a result of climate change, does that mean a bonanza in real estate for current owners along the Lake?
