TMCG files application for Leave to Appeal

posted Jan 16, 2020, 10:47 AM by Taxpayers for Michigan Constitutional Government

In December the TMCG legal team filed an application for Leave to Appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court on Counts I and II in our case against the State.


As you may recall, The Michigan Court of Appeals granted judgment in our favor on our claim that payments by the State to fund mandates could not be counted as payments in the form of aid to local governments. However, the Court ruled in favor of the State on our claims involving State payments to charter schools and Prop A payments. 


After careful consideration, the TMCG legal team determined the best course of action moving forward is to appeal the ruling on these two counts.


Shortly after TMCG filed for Leave to Appeal on Counts I and II, the State of Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget filed an application for Leave to Appeal on Count IV of our complaint, regarding payments made by the State to fund State mandates.


At this time, we await a decision from the Michigan Supreme Court on our application for Leave to Appeal.  Should the Court grant leave, it can be expected that a number of months will be needed before the appeals process is completed and the Court renders its decision.
