Justices not done with disqualification rule?

Today is Round 2 at the Michigan Supreme Court on recently amended MCR 2.003, which set up a disqualification procedure for MSC justices.

New and old ground will be trod upon.

Agenda items relating to MCR 2.003 for this morning’s public administrative conference include:

  • language dealing with timely motions to disqualify
  • amendments to the rule proposed by Justice Robert Young
  • reconsideration of the amended rule itself
  • whether to adopt a rule to require that a justice seeking reconsideration of a vote must first obtain consent by a member of the prevailing vote group

If the agenda items are discussed in order, the sequence is, “let’s talk about amending the amendments,” “let’s talk about whether there should have been any amendments at all” and “let’s talk about a way to, perhaps, not talk about this again.”
