Mackinac Center Legal Foundation

LANSING, MI (AP)--   The Michigan health department is being sued over its refusal to release more information about COVID-19 deaths tied to nursing homes.

The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation often takes aggressive action to get public records. It filed a lawsuit on behalf of Detroit journalist Charlie LeDuff. He is seeking ages, dates of death and whether the person became ill at a long-term care facility.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A lawsuit challenges Michigan's requirement that lawyers pay full dues to the State Bar, alleging it violates their constitutional rights to free speech and association in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that prohibits mandatory union fees from being assessed on public workers.
The suit was filed last week by the conservative Mackinac Center Legal Foundation on behalf of Lucille Taylor. She was former Gov. John Engler's chief legal counsel.
