SUPREME COURT HEARS CONTROVERSIAL CASE ON REPUBLICAN POWER GRAB LEGISLATION TODAY

LANSING, MI – After nearly a year of political, legal and sometimes public drama the Michigan Supreme Court heard oral arguments today on whether or not to issue leave on the controversial Republican Power Grab legislation orchestrated by Oakland County Republicans elected officials.

“My hope is that within a matter of days the Michigan Supreme Court puts Party politics aside and re-affirms the actions of Court the Appeals and Circuit Court – that the Republican Power Grab legislation is an unconstitutional Local Act and clearly crafted to benefit Republicans in Oakland County,” said plaintiff and Oakland County Apportionment Chairman Frank Houston. “The Supreme Court has choice to make – uphold the Constitution or Brooks Patterson’s partisan agenda.”

    I hope it goes well for Houston. Unfortunately given the extremist wing of the State Supreme Court, it might not.

    If the judges abide by the law and the law alone, the case is a slam dunk for Houston. But if they let their political biases get in the way, this won’t end well for the people of Oakland County.

      With two of the Republican-nominated justices up for re-election this November, if they both side against the law, it would be bad for the rule of law – but they will give Democrats more ammunition for the Supreme Court race this fall. What will Zahra and Markman do?
