State justices hear case arguments in Macomb

Clinton Township

The Michigan Supreme Court heard oral arguments at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts at Macomb Community College on Wednesday. Students from several Macomb County high schools were invited to attend the proceedings as part of the Court Community Connections program. Students also studied a selected case with attorney mentors, participated in a debriefing session with counsel for each party in the case and met Supreme Court justices. Before the case arguments, Chief Justice Robert P. Young Jr. and Justice David F. Viviano visited Chippewa High School. Before his appointment to the state’s highest court, Viviano was a Macomb County Circuit Court judge. This is the 15th time the court has heard oral arguments outside Lansing.
