Michigan Supreme Court will stay out of Paul Scott recall fracas


In a somewhat surprising move given the majority Republican make-up of the Michigan Supreme Court, they have decided not to hear an appeal of a lower court decision brought to them by Republican Paul Scott. Scott is the Republican most responsible for most of the anti-teacher legislation to come before the state legislature. He was challenging the clarity of the language of the petition but the Supremes were having none of it.

Another blow landed when another Republican, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, formally approved the recall of Paul Scott. It will be on the November ballot because petitioners had enough valid signatures.

It’s those small victories that keep you going, innit?
