It was at this time in 1996, that Michael wrote again to Marc McGinnes. Michael had in 1994 hired a private investigator to take photographs of the Haskell’s shoreline and environs. To his amazement, there still remained pilings with their concrete footings scattered along the shore. Along with that, signs had been posted stating “Submerged Objects, Use Caution.” Michael urged Marc to utilize some of his interns at the university to investigate this matter and queried whether he could file a lawsuit in Michael’s behalf in District Court asking for injunctive relief to finally ameliorate these issues-once and for all. Marc declined his offer. To this day, Michael feels that this was the wrong decision.
