The Detroit News Endorses Taylor
October 13, 2008
The Detroit News is out with a strong editorial endorsing the re-election of Michigan Supreme Court Justice Clifford Taylor. (Full disclosure: my wife, Colleen, is managing Chief Justice Taylor’s campaign). Some highlights:
The chief justice is one of a group of jurists who in recent years changed the direction of the court – mostly for the better.
The Supreme Court’s majority, including Taylor, have come under a lot of criticism from those who wish the court would return to being more friendly to trial lawyers. But the voters have rendered their verdicts on all of the majority’s members at least once.
Judge Hathaway [Taylor’s opponent] … favored the ill-advised Reform Michigan Government Now! ballot proposal, which was ruled off this fall’s ballot by both the appellate and Supreme Court. The plan’s backers admitted in their own presentations, after all, that the proposal was designed to tilt state government in favor of one political party.
Our support goes to Clifford Taylor.
