Chief Justice Kelly invites attorneys' comments on proposed rules

As many of you know, changes to the court rules occur after interested groups and individuals have a chance to comment.' Chief Justice Kelly told us that she would like more participation in this process by attorneys:

I'd like to remind lawyers that the Supreme Court' really values their input on our proposed rule changes and other administrative matters.' And maybe everybody knows by now, but you can go to our website,' courts.mi.gov and read what proposals are before the' Court and make comments, and you can also read comments' from other people, which is very helpful sometimes.' ' You're actually looking at the same material we look at' when we make our decision.' And I think this is a very' appropriate improvement in our process, and definitely' comments from people who know about the effect or the likely effect of rule changes has a big influence on us.' So don't be shy.
