If the City plows the snow off the street and blocks the sidewalk and a child who is forced off the sidewalk is hit by a car and killed, do you think the City has any responsibility?
Not in Michigan, not anymore. Why not? Because Cliff Taylor says so, that’s why.
In the case of Chantelle Buckner v City of Lansing, 480 Mich 1243 (2008) Justice Taylor’s court told the dead child’s family that the City of Lansing had no responsibility for plowing the snow off the street and blocking the sidewalk forcing the children into the street where she was struck and killed.
If you think this kind of judicial activism is wrong, vote to restore fairness by voting for Judge Hathaway for the Michigan Supreme Court on the nonpartisan section of the ballot this November. Remember, you have not cast a vote for the supreme court until you check the box next to Judge Hathaway’s name.
