The U.S. Supreme Court has decided to delay a discussion on the invasive Asian carp threatening Lake Michigan. The justices were scheduled to discuss today a Michigan lawsuit against Illinois over sealing off a canal leading into Lake Michigan.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the Supreme Court should reject that request.
