COA holds that Judge Peter D. O’Connell is not the incumbent for the office held by Judge Michael Gadola

In O’Connell v. Director of Elections, No. 334365, the Michigan Court of Appeals held that Court of Appeals Judge Peter D. O’Connell is not the incumbent for the office currently held by Judge Michael Gadola.  The Court found that the incumbency status is reserved for the judge running for reelection to a term consecutive to his or her own term, and that sole incumbent in this case is Judge Gadola.
