Developer To Do Time: Federal Judge sends Idaho man to the slammer for bulldozing creek

After seeing our Supreme Court justices recently pave the way for developers to turn waterways into strip malls (see Bob Marshall’s 6-21 post), it’s nice to see that at least some federal judges are not so accommodating.
