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 Men's Size 9 Duel Racer Running Shoes Black, White, Grey 918228 010 NEW. 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 Stefan Janoski Max Black/Black-Max Orange Men's 631303-014 SZ 10.5. 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.Nike T-Lite XI 11 Running Cross Training White Black Sneakers Shoes Mens 10.5Mens Nike Train Speed 4 TB 833259-011 Black White Brand New Size 11.
As I’ve written Nike Free Train Force Flyknit Mens Running Training Shoes 11 Black White 833275, 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 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.Nike Mercurial Veloce III FG Men’s Soccer Cleat 831961-585 Purple Size 11.5 NWOBNike Metcon 1 Men's Cross Training Shoe 704688 616 Size 9.5 (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 VAPOR SPEED TURF FOOTBALL SHOES LIGHTNING BLACK WHITE 847100 010 SIZE 8Nike x Gyakusou Lunarepic Flyknit Shield Sz 11.5 100% Authentic 859891 300 0.
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, NIKE Nike Metcon 3 Camo Sz 8 Cross Fit Trainer Running Shoes Mens 852928 008Nike Metcon 3 Men's Training Shoes, Size 12.5, 852928 012or 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 Navaro Low Lifestyle Shoes Black 484298 002 Size 13Mens Nike Veil Gyakusou Size 11 (AH2181 001) No Box 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.

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.
