The Corrections Division defends prisoner and public lawsuits filed against the Michigan Department of Corrections and its employees, including the Michigan Parole Board. We have 33 staff members, including attorneys, secretaries, and paralegals committed to doing this work.
In 2022, the division also took on the MDOC’s employment litigation and labor matters in a separate section dedicated to this work with five attorneys, a secretary-manager, and a paralegal.
Our representation in both federal and state courts includes civil rights litigation, wrongful death cases, class actions, and employment suits brought alleging race, gender, and religious discrimination under the Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act, and disability claims under Title VII, the ADA, and the Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act. The division has 40+ staff and handles more than 1200 cases each year.
