Gavel Grab

Harmonic Convergence in Mich.

A Detroit News editorial from last month, entitled ” ‘Reform’ Petition is a Grab for Control of the Courts,” discusses some troubling developments going on in Michigan.  As we’ve discussed in prior postings, the Reform Michigan Government Now campaign has the appearance of a troubling assault on the courts and possibly, as alleged by the editorial, even a partisan grab for control of the courts.

In fact, this plan’s effect on the courts appears to be so egregious that Dan Pero at American Courthouse and our own Bert Brandenberg have had a rare convergence of position on the topic, as Dan pointed out yesterday in a post on his blog.

We’ll certainly keep our eye on this situation as it develops, and Gavel Grab will keep you up to date.

UPDATE: has this article on the Michigan initiative.
