Michigan Supreme Court denies CADL leave to appeal
« on: November 21, 2013, 10:04:39 AM »
The order says it all.  CADL got denied leave to appeal.  They can still file a motion to reconsider.  If they do (probably won't), the Court will likely deny it again.  This matter (due to how long it would take) was no doubt considered thoroughly by the Court.

Quote
On order of the Court, the motions for leave to file brief amicus curiae are GRANTED. The application for leave to appeal the October 25, 2012 judgment of the Court of Appeals is considered, and it is DENIED, because we are not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by this Court.

CAVANAGH, J., would grant leave to appeal.

Don't understand the legalese?  We won.

Of note: we picked up one Democrat: Bridget Mary McCormack

Sweet, good work everybody.  Well really it was all me, but I'm humble.  Ok I lied I didn't do anything.


Thanks for the good news.

Oh, and...



Should pour some on the ground for the $100,000 of taxpayers' money that CADL killed.

If it was 6-1, I wonder why it took ten months for this?

Also, who is CAVANAGH, J?  Michael F. Cavanagh?

J and M are next to each other on a QWERTY keyboard.  I say typo.

Makes sense.  Smart, which is why you chose Linux over Windoze.  :P

This is significant. Very significant. The win is actually in the Court of Appeals opinion. The use of wording contained therein, such as "occupies the whole field" completely and the fact that the description of a "local unit of government" was broaden beyond the statute's narrow definition means that anything representing a form of government is strictly prohibited from enacting any "policies" restricting firearm possession.

Exactly. We are lucky that not only did the MSC rule on our side, they also left the MCOA opinion alone. Really couldn't have asked for much more.

Thanks to all who worked so hard to keep MI tyrants at bay. +1

Judge "Rosie" and the other Lansing a$$hats behind this (Mayor Virg B), need to be rode out of town on a rail, IMHO. :)
