The Urge To Undress and Unmask.
A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR AN ATTORNEY WHO WANTS TO START HIS OWN FIRM.

What happens when we turn over our courts to politicians disguised as judges?

Here is a post on a blog on the miblawg blog, which posts commentary on the Michigan Supreme Court.

The Michigan Supreme Court has been in the news a lot lately. It has been labeled as an extremist court dominated by neoconservatives. It has been labeled as a court run by politicians appointed to the bench by a governor who many believe was the most morally corrupt Governor in state history. Michigan Lawyers and Judges were recently polled by Michigan Trial Lawyers Weekly and overwhelmingly disagreed with the Wall Street Journal article, which had portrayed the Michigan Supreme Court in a positive light. 

There is little question that average citizens don’t pay much attention to third branch of government. Lawyers and many judges knows how dysfunctional the court system has become. And it is not because of jury trials. It’s because of courts and procedures and the infiltration of politicians onto the bench.

Miblawg raises some interesting issues concerning the Michigan Supreme Court. Do real people ever know that their rights have been taken away until after it’s too late?

Is it worse than our IL elected judges where special interest groups are putting millions of $$ into judicial candidates' coffers during elections?

Great point Peter. Our judiciary is broken, yet most people don't have a clue.
