Appeals Court judge lobbies for high court spot

•  Press Releases     updated  2011/01/12 09:17

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.
