Nice try, jerks
Last month I wrote about how my favorite judge, William Collette, had found Republican redistricting in Oakland County to be unconstitutional:
Judge William Collette said the law was unconstitutional.
Plaintiffs hailed the striking down of what they described as a “Republican power grab.” Lawyers for Gov. Rick Snyder, a defendant, said an appeal is likely.
Collette ruled the law, Public Act 280, should have received a two-thirds majority vote because it dealt with a local matter; violated the Headlee Amendment against unfunded mandates, and impinged on the rights of county voters to petition for judicial review of their reapportionment plan.
