Court reorganization signed by Snyder

LANSING (WKZO) -- A shakeup of the state court system is now law, and at least one judge isn't happy about it.

Governor Rick Snyder Tuesday signed Public Act 164, moving the Court of Claims away from the Ingham County Circuit Court and under the umbrella of the Michigan Court of Appeals.  Ingham County Circuit Court Judge William Collette tells the "Detroit Free Press" the move is "payback" for his rulings, some of which have gone against the Snyder administration and some in favor.

Collette has also ruled in several cases regarding the state's emergency manager law and the selection of Detroit's emergency manager, Kevyn Orr.
