Chief Justice Kelly in defense of MSC's satellite offices

On May 18, 2009, the Lansing State Journal published an editorial calling for the Michigan Supreme Court to close its satellite offices in Detroit and Traverse City to save taxpayer dollars. The Court voted to close its satellite offices in November 2008, and then reversed course in March 2009 after Justice Hathaway replaced Chief Justice Taylor. On May 24, 2009, the Lansing State Journal published a letter to the editor from Chief Justice Kelly defending the decision to maintain the satellite offices because of the expense to the State if the Court would vacate its state-owned building in Detroit. Chief Justice Kelly's defense of maintaining satellite offices is set forth more fully in her earlier statement regarding the decision.
