Monday, May 8, 2017

Gov. Snyder issued the following statement regarding the announcement that President Donald Trump has nominated Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen for the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals:

“Justice Larsen has served the people of Michigan very well as a Supreme Court Justice and is an outstanding choice for President Trump to appoint to the federal appeals court. It is disappointing that we will lose Justice Larsen on the Michigan Supreme Court because her legal expertise has been such a great asset. She deserves the nomination to the Sixth Circuit federal bench and I encourage the U.S. Senate to confirm her for that position as soon as possible.”
