By the end of July of every year, the Michigan Supreme Court issues its opinions in cases argued that term.
This term, the court issued 38 opinions, covering 48 cases that were argued, along with several thousand orders disposing of other cases.
These opinions addressed a wide range of issues that affect the daily lives of Michigan residents, from the safety of our families to the size of our paychecks.
Just a few years ago, you could count on one hand the number of unanimous opinions. This term, the court spoke unanimously 15 times – roughly 40 percent of our opinions. What does this mean? In resolving some of the most contentious issues involving interpretation of statutes and our constitutions, the seven justices saw eye to eye.
