The state Supreme Court is wading into a case that could affect people's ability to stroll Michigan's 3,200 miles of shoreline along the Great Lakes.
The court heard arguments Tuesday in a highly-watched case balancing the public's access to Great Lakes beaches and property owners' right to land adjacent to the water's edge.
A packed courtroom watched as justices focused their questions on a main issue in the dispute, whether the portion of beach below the high water mark that extends to the water's edge belongs to the state or to landowners.
The court is expected to issue a decision by the end of July.
