Today Matty Moroun and Dan Stamper of the privately owned Detroit International Bridge Co. are scheduled to go back to court and see the judge that threw them in jail for one night last month over the Gateway project at the Ambassador Bridge. To appease the court, they announced yesterday that the DIBC will cede control of the disputed Gateway project to an outside committee. The Pier 19 ramp (the start of their second bridge to Windsor) will be removed. “The court has issued orders. Whether we agree with those orders or not, we are going to follow them,” Matthew Moroun (son of Matty), vice chair of the DIBC, said at the news conference. He said that keeping his father and Stamper out of jail was a key consideration in making the moves. "I don’t think any human being likes jail," he told reporters. [Freep]
