MSC Oral Argument: May 5, 2009

Today, the Michigan Supreme Court will hear oral argument in two cases: Seyburn, Kahn v. Bakshi, No. 136436 at 9:00, and People v. McGraw, No. 132876 at 10:00. The Court granted leave to appeal in Seyburn, Kahn to determine when the statute of limitations accrues for a claim by an attorney against a client for unpaid legal fees (an issue of importance to many of the readers of this blog). The Court granted leave in McGraw to determine whether the offense variables of the sentencing guidelines are scored based on the defendant's conduct in committing the specific offense or more broadly based on the defendant's conduct during the entire criminal transaction. Our summary of People v. McGraw is here.
