253.14 Rights of riparian owners; board of trustees to defend suit.
(1) It is expressly provided that nothing contained in this chapter shall be so construed as to deprive any private riparian owner from bringing an injunction suit in equity against the sale provided for in s. 253.12 on the ground that the owner would be thereby deprived of his or her riparian rights granted to him or her by law; provided, that such suit must be commenced within 30 days after the board of trustees shall have overruled the objections of such owner to such proposed sale.
(2) In case suit is brought by any private owner to enjoin such sale, it shall be in the discretion of the board of trustees to defend such suit or to withdraw said lands from sale.
