Appeals Court judge lobbies for high court spot

Headline Legal News Posted on

Appeals Court Judge Jane Markey of Grand Rapids says Gov. Rick Snyder should name her to the Michigan Supreme Court because she'd bring a west Michigan perspective.

Snyder could name a replacement as early as Monday for Justice Maura Corrigan, who steps down Friday to become Human Services director.

The 59-year-old Markey said in a release that current justices are from southeast Michigan or the Lansing area. She adds no one from Grand Rapids has been a justice since 1946.

Markey hoped to run for the high court in 2010, but Republicans nominated Wayne Circuit Court Judge Mary Beth Kelly, who beat Justice Alton Davis.
