Asian Carp litigation: preliminary injuction dismissed


The US Supreme Court dismissed Michigan's motion for preliminary injunction today (see previous posts and Dan Egan's article).

Hearing on the merits will pake place on February 19, with judgement rendered possibly not before a few months.

In the meantime, it is reported that DNA sampling taken on December 8th would confirm the presence of Asian Carp in Lake Michigan...

Is this the demonstration that article 20 of the UN 1997 Convention on non-navigational uses of international watercourses is not customary international law?
