The key additional information I had going into this motion was MCL 750.157a Conspiracy to do a legal act in an illegal manner. In First Crimes, the conspiracy was to injure the property rights of the lot owners north of Mallard Street in Recreation Development Subdivision No. 1. Mallard Street was platted as a 30’ wide roadway with only residential lots on the north side of Mallard Street, yet Blue Goose Avenue was platted as 66’ wide roadway with residential lots on both sides of the roadway. Under First Crimes, we show how the developer and Ganges Township conspired to injure the property rights of the lot owners (shaded in gray) north of Mallard Street by not complying with the requirements of the Land Division Act of 1967 (LDA67).
