While many travel to enjoy the beautiful shorelines of the Great Lakes, who owns a few stretches of those shorelines is still unclear.
In February, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled that Indiana’s beach on Lake Michigan belongs to the public; however, the ruling didn’t put an end to the north Indiana beach ownership battle.
Don and Bobbie Gunderson, from Long Beach, Ind. are looking to appeal that ruling to the United State Supreme Court. However, Gunderson’s no longer own the two properties on Lakeshore Drive and haven’t for years.
Lakeshore Drive in Long Beach, Ind. is one of the most desired areas in northern Indiana; do to the unobstructed and expansive views of Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes. If the beach in front of the properties were ruled private it would increase the property value tremendously.
The Gunderson’s sold the two properties for $2.25 million apiece to Oakley Home Builders, Inc. who construct and market luxury lakefront estate homes.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan granted Gunderson parties’ request for an extension, giving them till October 5th to file a cert petition challenging the Indiana ruling after the two state appeals were lost.
