MSC Order: City of Rockford's challenge to consolidation of the 63rd District Court fails

The Michigan Supreme Court denied leave to appeal in Rockford v. 63rd District Court, No. 140541. The City of Rockford had challenged Kent County's plan to have both of the 63rd District's judges sit in a single location. The trial court and the Court of Appeals had both rejected Rockford's challenge concluding that the County was free to require the judges to sit in the same location. Our earlier post on the Court of Appeals' decision is here. Justice Weaver would have granted leave to appeal.
