Story to watch
April 3, 2013 - Chris Tomassucci
Ingham County Circuit Judge William Collette refused to dismiss a lawsuit today brought by opponents of Michigan's right-to-work law.
Plaintiffs in the suit are seeking to invalidate the legislation, alleging that locking protesters out of the Capitol when right-to-work was being debated in the Legislature last December violated the Michigan Open Meetings Act.
Attorney General Bill Schuette was hoping for an immediate dismissal.
From the Associated Press:
Circuit Judge William Collette on Wednesday said plaintiffs in the case have a "real uphill battle" but should be allowed to depose witnesses and collect evidence.
A story to keep an eye on.
