Michigan doesn’t like it. “Nevertheless, Plaintiff, Flying Dog

Flying Dog wants the Court to jump ahead of deliberate analysis in this case and rush to grant it
relief. But a matter as weighty as this must be handled in a restrained, thoughtful manner. A
preliminary injunction here would inflict this detrimental and admittedly inflammatory2 language
on captive audiences throughout Michigan, a harm that cannot be undone.” long brief Former A-B InBev exec buys O’Fallon Brewery Bell’s construction pictures.
