LANSING - Attorney General Bill Schuette announced today that Michigan Solicitor General John Bursch is departing the Attorney General's Office to return to private practice this December.

Bursch served nearly three years as Solicitor General, supervising all of the State's appellate litigation and argued frequently in the Michigan and U.S. Supreme Courts.  By the close of his term with the Attorney General's Office, Bursch will have argued eight cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, including the recent Schuette vs. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action

Bursch's last day as Solicitor General will be December 6, 2013.  Bursch, of Grand Rapids, will return to the firm of Warner Norcross & Judd LLP.

"I will miss John's advice and counsel immensely.  John and his wife Angela are wonderful friends, and I understand his responsibilities to his wife and children.  I wish John and his family nothing but the best," said Schuette.

"It has truly been an honor for me to work with Attorney General Schuette and to represent the People of the great State of Michigan," said Bursch.  "I sincerely thank General Schuette for putting his trust in me and also offer my thanks to the hard-working team of attorneys and staff who made our successes on behalf of the People of Michigan possible."
