Michigan Supreme Court to hold off on hearing cases

The Michigan Supreme Court is adjourning its December docket, and will hear oral arguments in January 2011 instead.

On the list of cases scheduled for December arguments before the Court is a dispute between Acme Township and Meijer Inc. over campaign finance activities.


Meijer Inc. appeals to MSC

“Meijer Inc. is asking the state Supreme Court to overturn an appellate court ruling that would allow the Grand Traverse County prosecutor to investigate whether the retailer criminally tampered with two failed special elections connected to a proposed Acme Township supercenter,” reports the Grand Rapids Press.

“The Walker-based retail chain and its former law firm filed separate appeals Monday afternoon, ahead of a 5 p.m. deadline, according to the Supreme Court clerk’s office.

“Meijer spokesman Frank Guglielmi confirmed the filing, but declined further comment.”
