COA: Fit parents have the right to adjust grandparenting time

“MCL 722.27b provides grandparents in certain situations the means to seek an order for grandparenting time.” However, in Geering v. King, No. 335794, the Court of Appeals found that this cannot come at the expense of limiting the right of fit parents, who may, for reasons the courts may disagree with, choose to limit the amount of time that their children spend with their grandparents.

MSC grants mini-oral argument to clarify the retroactive application of Executive Order 225 to retiree benefit contributions

The Michigan Supreme Court is not quite done with its analysis of the retroactivity of Order 225.  The Court again granted mini-oral argument in Board of Trustees of the City of Pontiac v. City of Pontiac, No. 154745, to address whether (1) the Court of Appeals correctly applied the findings in LaFontaine Saline, Inc. v. Chrysler Group, LLC, 496 Mich 26 (2014) to Order 225; (2) whether LaFontaine prohibited the retroactive application of Order 225 to the trust; and (3) if LaFontaine does not apply, whether Order 225’s retroactive modification of the 2011-2012 fiscal contribution to the trust is impermissible under the Michigan constitution.  This decision could have an impact on the application of Order 225 retroactively to a wide-range of obligations and claims.

In Citizens Ins Co of America v. University Physician Grp, No 328553, the Court of Appeals found when a plaintiff, seeking to enforce rights to indemnity or reimbursement, uses the word “reimbursement” in a complaint against a third party provider defendant(s) under the assigned claims system, the 2-year statute of limitations under MCL 500.3175(3) governs the proceedings.
