Settling a long-running property dispute between the State of Ohio and owners of property along the Lake Erie shore, the Supreme Court of Ohio unanimously held that the portion of the lake owned by the state extends to the "natural shoreline," defined as the point "at which water usually stands when free from disturbing causes." The state had argued that the state-owned territory extended inland to a "high-water mark" established in 1985 by the Army Corps of Engineers. News of the decision is available here and here.
