Wayne County is the most populous county in Michigan, and the eleventh most populous county in the United States. Encompassing thirty-one cities, including Detroit, Wayne County is named after General "Mad Anthony" Wayne, who fought in both the Revolutionary War and the Northwest Indian war. Each of the "Big Three" domestic automakers originated in Wayne County, and the presence of the auto industry directly influenced the growth of the county.
In the News: In February 2009, a Wayne County man sued the Department of Defense and the US Army in federal district court in Detroit claiming that the defendants had violated his constitutional right to sue the government by hiding behind a defense of "state secrets." In 1997 the Jewish military engineer was accused of being an Israeli spy because he wore a yarmulke and adhered to strict Jewish customs. After placing the engineer on leave and stripping him of security clearance, no charges of spying or treason were ever brought against the engineer. In 1998, he brought a suit for religious discrimination, but was defeated in 2002 when the Department of Defense and the US Army claimed the trial could not go forward because doing so would reveal state secrets. Now, the Wayne County engineer, who still works for the Army, is suing for the harm to his career and for the violation of his constitutional rights.
