Michigan Riparian Rights: 2000 Baum Family Trust v Babel

January 11, 2012
Riparian Rights Blog Post

In Baum, the Michigan Supreme Court reversed a decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals which could have undermined the riparian rights of thousands of Michigan riparians who must cross a public road to access their water frontage. The Michigan Supreme Court held that front-lot owners whose property is separated by a public road running parallel to the water have riparian rights. In reversing the court of appeals on this point, the Michigan Supreme Court reaffirmed what most riparian rights practitioners believed to be a decades-old and well-settled law in Michigan.
