Federal judge tosses out 4-state lawsuit over invasive Asian carp

by

CHICAGO, IL (WTAQ) - A federal judge has tossed out a lawsuit filed by Wisconsin and four other states against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Those states want barriers placed in Chicago-area waterways to keep the invasive Asian carp from making it into the Great Lakes.

U.S. District Judge John Tharp said federal law requires the corps to keep shipping channels open between Lake Michigan and at least one of the Chicago waterways. The judge said he was aware of the potential harmful effects of the Asian carp, but the proper way for the states to physically separate the network of lakes and rivers from Lake Michigan would be through Congressional action.

He can’t order the Corps of Engineers to break federal law.

Judge Tharp said he would consider new arguments if the states file the case again.

Scientists say if the carp make it into the Great Lakes, they could severely damage the seven billion dollar fishing industry.
