In a recent study by the University of Chicago School of Law, the Michigan Supreme Court was ranked dead last in Independence. The academic study determined that the justices on this court (including Taylor, Markman, Young and Corrigan) demonstrated the least ability of the hundreds of state supreme court judges to withstand partisan pressures.
The results of this study come as no surprise to attorneys actively practicing in Michigan. These justices have consistently ruled in favor of the insurance companies, the chamber of commerce and the corporations who fund their reelection campaigns. This Court has overturned more cases faster than any other court in memory.
