Michigan Supreme Court Update

Posted: Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Michigan Supreme Court Justice Robert Young (pictured, right) retired on April 17, 2017. Justice Young spent 20 years on the bench and 18 on the state Supreme Court, where he served three terms as the Chief Justice.

Justice Young’s current eight-year term will end in 2019. Following his retirement, on May 9, 2017, Governor Rick Snyder appointed Kurtis Wilder to fill the vacancy. Justice Wilder, age 58, previously served as Chief Judge of the Washtenaw County Court. Prior to that, he was appointed to the Michigan Court of Appeals in December 1998 by then-Governor John Engler and was subsequently elected to that post in 2000 and re-elected in 2004 and 2010.  

Since both Justices Young and Wilder are considered conservative, this new appointment will maintain the existing 5-2 Republican majority on the Michigan Supreme Court.

In related news, President Donald Trump has nominated Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen to the U.S. Court of Appeals, 6th Circuit. If the U.S. Senate approves this nomination, Governor Snyder will likely have the opportunity to appoint yet another Justice to fill the remainder of Justice Larsen’s term. As a Republican, Governor Snyder would be expected to appoint another conservative justice, which would again maintain the state Supreme Court’s current 5-2 Republican majority.
