Legal Edge: Filling Michigan judicial vacancies

Local News

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Every Tuesday during 6 News at 5:30 P.M., we bring you a segment called “Legal Edge.” We help breakdown laws in the state, answer viewer questions, and provide legal reminders to people on various topics.

Ahead of the confirmation hearings in Washington for President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee, 6 News broke-down how federal judicial vacancies are filled. That is done by appointments from the President and confirmation in the Senate. We detailed that a few weeks ago. You can find that segment here.

But the system for state courts here in Michigan is very different and voters in the Great Lakes State have some decisions to make before and on November 3rd.

So today, Attorney Bryan Waldman from the Sinas Dramis Law Firm explains how the process works and why you should pay close attention to your ballot before you vote in this year’s General Election.
