State Supreme Court Justices say no to Governor Snyder

LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder tried to take a short cut, by asking the State Supreme Court to review ultra-controversial Right to Work legislation, but the Justices have cut him off at the pass.

The high court voted unanimously to reject a request for supervisory opinions on a number of potential challenges to the legislation, which passed during the lame duck session last year.

The Justices were asked in January, and 6 months later finally agreed unanimously that it would be inappropriate and they would rather wait for specific challenges to come up through the court system.

Several lawsuits have already been filed.

One case was filed by state workers, who claim because the Michigan Civil Services Commission didn’t approve Right to Work, it doesn’t apply to them.
