Michigan's high court says "no" to review of Detroit consent deal
Earlier this month, some opposed to the state's efforts to enter into a consent agreement with Detroit tried to stop the process from going forward - arguing in front of an Ingham County judge that the state did not comply with Michigan's Open Meetings Act.
The judge agreed and ordered a halt to the process, but in an appeal by the state the Michigan Court of Appeals put a stay on the judge's decision.
Union activist and Highland Park school board member Robert Davis appealed all the way to the Michigan Supreme Court.
Today, the Michigan Supreme Court said it won't take up Davis' appeal.
The Associated Press reports "in an order dated Friday that it wasn't persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed."
Robert Davis is the Highland Park school board member who is currently under a federal indictment for stealing funds from Highland Park schools. He says he will fight the charges.
