Welcome extended to new court crier

The Michigan Supreme Court recently welcomed Jeff Mills as the court’s new crier.

Mills is a veteran of both the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, having worked as the records clerk/manager for the court of appeals from 1981 to 1998, and as the data administrator in the Supreme Court since 1998.

Chief Justice Stephen Markman said Mills “will be an invaluable asset to the justices and to all the staff at the Hall of Justice.”

Mills and his wife live in the Mason area and have three children and seven grandchildren.

He replaces former long-time crier, David Palazzolo, who died last year.
