The firm represented a developer in its successful challenge to the authority of a township to require a developer to construct new sidewalks for the public on established county roads around the outer boundary of its subdivision, where the county and township had no sidewalks.  In First DeWitt II, LLC v Charter Twp of DeWitt, an unpublished decision of the Court of Appeals, Docket No. 243217 (2003), the Court of Appeals held that the Township lacked such authority and upheld the developer’s right to construct its proposed subdivision without sidewalks along the outer boundary.  The Township did not appeal the decision of the Court of Appeals.
