Markey announces MSC bid

Judge Jane Markey, a nearly 16-year veteran on the Michigan Court of Appeals, is seeking the Republican Party’s nomination for the Michigan Supreme Court.

Markey hopes to get the GOP’s nod at the August nominating convention to run for the MSC seat being vacated by Justice Marilyn Kelly. Kelly can’t seek re-election due to an age limit in the state constitution.

If Markey snags the nomination and wins in the November general election, she would be the first MSC justice from Grand Rapids since 1946.

Markey was first elected to the COA in 1995 and was re-elected in 2002 and 2008. Before that, she served an elected four-year term as a judge of the 61st District Court in Grand Rapids. She was in private practice from 1982 to 1991. More particulars here.

A 1981 graduate of the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, she was Editor-in-Chief of the Cooley Law Review’s first volume.
