One response to “Legal Rights for Lake Erie?

  1. It seems clear to me that a lake cannot have interests of its own, but even if it could, that is not the basis of the proposed law. Rather, it is regarded as a means of giving people the standing to sue. But to sue for what? The lake’s interests or the interests of the people who suffer from its pollution? Surely, the latter and I can’t think why giving a lake standing is necessary to allow those harmed by pollution from suing. It seems not only unconstitutional but costly, unnecessary, and illogical.
