Tag: Michigan State Supreme Court
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
Back on November 4, 2008, the electoral disaster known as the Obama Tsunami swept out SCOMI rule-of-law Chief Justice Cliff Taylor, replacing him with creative interpretationist Diane Hathaway. During the intervening two years, Robert Young jr. (who is now the SCOMI Chief Justice) lectured on a regular basis throughout the state on the importance of returning a rule-of-law majority to the state's highest bench. The result was that, on November 2, 2010, the voters of Michigan elected Judge Mary Beth Kelly to the state's highest court. Combined with the re-election of Justice Robert Young, they turned out creative interpretation Justice Alton Davis and restored a rule-of-law majority to that bench.
However, with Governor Snyder tapping rule-of-law Justice Maura Corrigan to head the Department of Human Services, the voters of this state were understandably concerned that the governor might appoint someone who wouldn't square with the philosophy that they had voted for. I had spoken with Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley back on last Tuesday (January 4th) regarding this, and had been assured by him that the strongest rule-of-law judge not currently serving on Michigan's State Supreme Court would be appointed to fill the vacancy.
I'm happy to notice that I've not been disappointed.

On November 2, 2010, the voters of Michigan elected Judge Mary Beth Kelly to the state's highest court. Combined with the re-election of Justice Robert Young, they turned out Justice Alton Davis and restored a rule-of-law majority to that bench. That's a good thing. Unfortunately, that proper refereeing mentality didn't actually exist on SCOMI until noon on New Year's Day . . . when Justice-elect Kelly was sworn in.
This meant that, for the two months between Election Day and Inauguration Day, a rule-of-empathy majority still existed on Michigan's State Supreme Court. And just like the legislature, the high priesthood of creative interpretation held a lame-duck session, in which they've managed to come up with a way to screw us all.
