Michigan Supreme Court Refuses To Reverse Injunction Against Private School Aid

In Council of Organizations and Others for Education About Parochiaid v. State of Michigan,  (MI Sup. Ct., March 9, 2018), the Michigan Supreme Court in a brief order denied leave to appeal a preliminary injunction issued by the Court of Claims.  That injunction prohibited payment of $2.5 million the legislature had allocated to private schools to cover the cost of complying with state mandates. (See prior posting.)  Chief Justice Markham filed a dissenting opinion arguing that the decision of the Court of Claims should be reversed.
