Corporate Greed

The Michigan Land Use Institute has an excellent story on its website, outlining the efforts of a certain Timothy Stoepker, attorney to the big box stores, who is aggressively litigating to override local government decisions to exclude the stores from their townships. Some of their methods are downright diabolical.  From the page:

“BEAR CREEK TOWNSHIP— An attorney with a controversial history of suing public officials as private citizens has helped force this Emmet County township to spend $388,000 to defend itself against multiple lawsuits he’s filed on behalf of a local developer with downstate roots.”

Bastards.
