WI Court of Appeals – District II
Case Name: Club Unique Improvement Corporation v. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, et al.,
Case No.: 2020AP902
Officials: Gundrum, P.J., Neubauer and Reilly, JJ.
Focus: ALJ Review – Permit Application
Club Unique Improvement Corporation (Club Unique or the Club) appeals from an order of the circuit court denying its petition for judicial review of a decision from an administrative law judge (ALJ). Club Unique argues that the ALJ erred in concluding that it had competency to proceed over a contested case hearing and in reversing the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource’s (DNR) decision to grant the Club’s application for a permit to modify and expand its pier on Geneva Lake in the Village of Fontana. We affirm.
