A lawsuit filed to stop the construction of the Gordie Howe International Bridge has been rejected by a federal judge.
According to a story in The Detroit News, U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer rejected the lawsuit filed on behalf of Grosse Pointe billionaire Manuel Moroun’s Detroit International Bridge Co.
The lawsuit claimed that that the agreement reached by Michigan and Canada was unconstitutionally approved by the Department of State. The judge stated that she did not believe there to be anything unlawful about the agreement.
Moroun has filed seven claims against elements of the project, which will see the new bridge constructed approximately two miles downstream from the Ambassador Bridge, currently owned by Moroun.
