LANSING, MI (AP)-- Court clerks around Michigan are criticizing a proposal to allow phones and other electronic devices in courthouses.
Among their objections: They fear they’ll lose money.
The Michigan Supreme Court is holding a public hearing Wednesday in Lansing.
Courts typically charge people to make copies of public documents. Someone with an electronic device could do it for free. For example, Mason County charges $1 per page. Clerk Cheryl Kelly says the proposed rule “would put a dent in our revenue.”
