Michigan Supreme Court | Susan J. Demas
The Michigan Supreme Court will hear multiple cases via Zoom videoconference in April in an effort to continue its work amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Oral arguments in two cases are scheduled to be heard on April 15, and two more are set for April 22. Court justices plan to use Zoom to hear each case. Attorneys also have agreed to argue their cases using the software. So far, legislative leaders have resisted moves allowing bodies to meet electronically.
Here are the cases on the court’s April docket:
- 9:30 a.m. — Kathleen Gaydos, PR of Estate of Voutsaras v. Bender. Case Nos. 159107 and 159124.
- 10:30 a.m. — Skanska USA Building Inc. v. MAP Mechanical Insurance Co. Case No. 159510-1.
- 9:30 a.m. — Anthony Hart v. State of Michigan. Case No. 159539.
- 10:30 a.m. — Caleb Griffin v. Swartz Ambulance Service. Case No. 159205.
