MSC Order List: December 22, 2009

The Michigan Supreme Court issued two orders on December 22, 2009. In Smiles v. Dep't of Corrections, No. 140213, the Supreme Court denied a motion to waive fees because the relevant statute requires that a prisoner pursuing a civil action is liable for filing fees. Also, in People v. Guerra, No. 139157, the Supreme Court corrected a clerical error by noting that Justices Young and Corrigan join in the concurring statement of Justice Markman in a December 9, 2009 order denying leave to appeal in this case.
