Michigan Court Seeks AG's View on Right-to-Work Law


LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court is in no hurry to give an opinion on the legality of the state's right-to-work law.

In fact, the court still hasn't decided whether to even grant Gov. Rick Snyder's request. The court on Friday asked a high-ranking member of the attorney general's office to weigh in on whether the justices should intervene.

Two justices disagree with the need for input from the state's solicitor general.

In January, Snyder asked the court to tell him whether the new law would affect state employees who belong to a union. The governor believes an opinion from the state's highest court might solve months or years of litigation in other courts.

The right-to-work law allows workers in Michigan to stop paying union dues if they choose.
