Dickinson Wright Attorney Tim Stoepker Argues Wetlands Case Before the U.S. Supreme Court

2/21/2006
On February 21, 2006, the United States Supreme Court reviewed the case of Keith and Jane Carabell, Macomb County residents intending to develop a 19 acre parcel in Chesterfield Township, Michigan. The key legal question under consideration was whether the Clean Water Act applies to wetlands that are not part of a navigable waterway and have no hydrological connection to any waterway, navigable or not navigable, and, if so, does Congress have the authority to extend federal jurisdiction over such lands? Mr. and Mrs. Carabell, in the case Carabell v. United States Army Corps of Engineers, were represented before the Supreme Court by Timothy A. Stoepker of Detroit-based Dickinson Wright PLLC.
