On April 5, 2019, the Michigan Supreme Court unanimously reversed the Michigan Court of Appeals dismissal of the case. This is an important victory that permits the case to move forward. The Court ruled 6-0 that two of the three named plaintiffs had filed their case in time.
What Does The Ruling Mean To You?
It means that the case is alive. It also means that we do not have a quick or easy resolution. The Supreme Court is sending the case back to the Court of Appeals to answer another technical legal issue. We understand that the long wait is frustrating. We are hopeful that the decision will spur the State to settle the case instead of continuing to fight. But we are prepared to see this through no matter how long it takes.
