A public agency’s effort to cut a road through the Michigan wilderness for a Canadian mining company has suffered yet another legal setback.
This morning, the Supreme Court published the list of orders from its March 1 conference. The court has denied the petition for certiorari in Marquette County Road Commission v. EPA, the dispute over County Road 595 I’ve been Nike Air Max Infuriate Low Men's Shoes White/Black/Wolf Grey 852457-100 Size 11. This denial means, simply, that the Supreme Court declines to review the case, without further comment, and the decision by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals stands.
The Road Commission’s case turned on the question whether objections by the EPA to the proposal for CR 595 constituted “final agency action.” If so, they would be reviewable by a court. In arguments before the Sixth Circuit, the Pacific Legal Foundation’s Mark Miller insisted that EPA’s objections to the Road Commission’s proposal were tantamount to a “veto,” but his repeated use of that word ended up confusing the judges, and their NIKE Mens Air Max Infuriate Low Basketball Shoe 852457 200 SIZE 9.5 NEW. The Road Commission, they reminded him, could always have simply gone back to the Army Corps of Engineers with an amended proposal that took the EPA’s objections into account.Mens Nike Flyknit Trainer AH8396-500 Night Purple Brand New Size 8Nike NIKESKIN 779422 007 LunarBeast Elite TD Football Cleats Men's SIZE 9.5 ANB.
As I’ve written NEW Nike Men's Air Max LTD Athletic Shoe Size 11.5 NIB, Miller made a lot of other arguments before the Sixth Circuit (and the in pages of the Wall Street Journal) that suggest this case was about more than building a haul road from Eagle Mine to Humboldt Mill. Like others advocating for CR 595, he tried to suggest that the Environmental Protection Agency was in cahoots with environmental groups, and part of an anti-mining conspiracy. These arguments were never intended to go anywhere legally.

They brought in dark money NIKE AIR MAX MOTION LW PREM SNEAKERS SIZE 11, BLACK 861537004, BRAND NEW, OFFER!NIKE AIR MAX FLY BY BLACK-WHITE SZ 14 [429545-051]and support from outside groups. They divided people. They helped advance a larger political project.
After a long and fruitless detour through the court system, the Road Commission has come to a legal dead end. But the Road Commission and its allies, within and without Marquette County, still have options. Lundin Mining’s development of Eagle East has extended the life of the mine to 2023 — “at least,” the company says. There is nothing to prevent the Road Commission from revising its proposal, and trying again. The question remains whether doing so would serve the broad public interest, or simply advance the short-term interests of the mining company.

As of this morning, it looks as if the lawyers for Chilean mining magnate Andronico Luksic Craig decided not to renew, or simply neglected to renew, the District of Columbia business license for Tracy DC Real Estate, Inc., the company that owns the Kalorama Triangle mansion rented by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.Mens Nike Air Max Vision PRM 918229-600 Port Wine Brand New Size 11Nike Air Max Vision 918230-401 Navy/Navy Mens Size 11 Brand New w/ Box (For some background, see this post.) A search for the license on the District of Columbia’s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs site conducted yesterday at 9:43AM — on the day the license was set to expire — showed that it was “ready to renew.”
Today, the same search yields no records.Nike Free Hypervenom 3 FC FK Comfort Mens Soccer Shoes Flyknit 11.5 NEW 898029Nike Hypervenom Phatal II FG 749893-307 Green Black Men's Soccer Cleats Size 10.
Update 7 March 2019. One week on, and no license renewal. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the group behind Tracy DC Real Estate, having gotten what it wanted, or all it’s going to get from this administration, no longer sees any need to keep up appearances, NIB! Men's Nike Air MVP Pro Metal 2 Size 10.5 Black/ White 684685-010Nike Air Odyssey Obsidian White Blue Grey Men's size 9 D 806252 401 NIBor pretend that the rental ever was a legitimate business arrangement. Non-renewal of the business license strongly suggests that the Kalorama mansion should be looked upon as a foreign emolument.
*Update 26 March, 2019. Still no record online of the Tracy DC Real Estate business license renewal, but the property taxes for the first half of 2019 have been paid. And on 20 March, the corporation filed a biennial report with the District of Columbia Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.NIKE AIR MAX ZERO ESSENTIAL 876070-600 UNIVERSITY RED BLACK WHITE DS SIZE: 9Men's Nike Air Presto Mid Utility Athletic Fashion Sneakers 859524 300 Size 11 These reports are due by April 1st of each second calendar year. They appears to be keeping up with everything except the business license.
**Update 5 May 2019. This financing activity may have included the Kalorama mansion. Nike Air Max Prime SL Performance Shoes Sneakers Men's Size 9.5 New without BoxNike Air Trainer 1 Mid SP/Fragment Size 8.5On April 5th, 2018, Rodrigo Swett signed a Deed of Trust for 2.75M on the property at 2449 Tracy Place NW. On the same day, he signed similar instruments for multiple properties in Miami Beach and at least 7 properties in Boston’s Back Bay. That would seem to cover the “three states” (Florida, Massachusetts, and District of Columbia) to which Synder refers in his bio.
Update 9 June 2019. The business license for the mansion was renewed on 31 May, 2019, a full three months after it was allowed to expire.
What accounts for the three month lapse? An oversight by Luksic’s lawyers seems the most likely explanation.
