Court of Appeals upholds closing of Rockford District Court

On Tuesday, the Michigan Court of Appeals affirmed Kent County’s plan to consolidate the Rockford and Grand Rapids Township District Courts into a new facility in Grand Rapids Township.

The dispute erupted when the City of Rockford and 63rd-1 District Court Judge Steven R. Servaas filed an action for declaratory relief in an attempt to keep the court in Rockford.

The unanimous Court of Appeals decision can be found here.
