Colleen O’Brien forms MSC candidate committee

Oakland County 6th Circuit Judge Colleen O’Brien has formed the “Colleen O’Brien for Justice” committee.

According to the Michigan Secretary of State online database, O’Brien is declaring no party affiliation, but will have to be nominated by either the Democratic or Republican party for the nonpartisan election. She formed her committee on Jan. 30, 2012.

Joining her in the race to fill one of three seats is Justice Brian Zahra, who was appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder on Jan. 14, 2011 to fill a vacancy created when the governor recruited Justice Maura Corrigan to head the Department of Human Services.

On Feb. 1, Michigan Innocence Clinic director Bridget McCormack also formed her committee to run for Michigan Supreme Court. She has declared affiliation with the Democratic Party.

Justice Marilyn Kelly’s seat will be open, as she is ineligible to run for re-election because she will be 70 years old come November.

Justice Stephen Markman will have to run for re-election if he wishes to remain on the court; his term ends Jan. 1, 2013.
