Michigan Supreme Court to hear special session

The Michigan Supreme Court has announced that a special session of the court is scheduled for July 18 to hear oral arguments in #157925, Citizen’s Protecting MI’s Constitution v Secretary of State.

The court will convene to hear the case at 9:30 a.m. in the sixth floor of the Hall of Justice, 925 W. Ottawa Street in Lansing.

Pursuant to the court’s July 6, 2018, order, the parties shall address whether the proposal at issue is eligible for placement on the November 2018 general election ballot as a voter-initiated constitutional amendment under Const 1963, art 12, §2, or whether it is a revision to the constitution and therefore is ineligible for placement on the ballot.

The court broadcasts its oral arguments and other hearings live on the Internet via streaming video technology (www.courts.mi.gov/live). Those interested can watch the stream live only while the court is in session and on the bench. Streaming will begin shortly before the hearings start; audio will be muted until justices take the bench. The court can be followed on Twitter for regular updates as cases are heard.
