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 Fs Lite Run 3 (807144 002) Shoes Men 100% Authentic Size 7.5 - 40.5 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 AIR FORCE 1 LOW PREMIUM LONDON EDITION UNIVERSITY BLUE SIZE 7.5 315180-471. 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 2018 Benassi JDI Fanny Pack Slide Black White Cool Grey AO1037-001 Men 10Nike Men's CTR360 Trequartista III FG Soccer Cleats Sz 6.5 NEW 525162 810 Citrus.
As I’ve written Nike Air Jordan Huarache Barely Size 8 Men’s Black White Teal Grey, 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.807472 102 NIKE CLASSIC CORTEZ NYLON WHITE GYM BLUE MEN SNEAKERS SIZE 9.5Mens NIKE HYPERVENOM PHELON II TF Green Football Shoes 749899 308 (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 HypervenomX Finale II IC Indoor Soccer Shoes Orange Green SZ ( 852572-308 )AIR JORDAN 1 MID PREMIER BG GS 6 Y VARSITY RED DARK ARMY GREEN 619049 631.
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 Air Monarch Black Black Man Size New In Box 415445 001New NIKE AIR MAX MOTION (819798-100) PREMIUM MENS SNEAKERS RUNNING SHOESor 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 Force 180 Phoenix Mid Suns size 11 mensNIKE 704830-014: Men's Air Huarache Run Black/Sail Sneaker 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. Shoes Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 33 GS 834316 402 Unisex Running Comfort Sport Blue-RNike Air Footscape Mens 11 Black/ Ivory White Woven Stitch Chukka SE 857874-001On 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.
