Supreme Court justice who lost election will hear arguments until end of the year

Nov 19, 2018

Michigan Supreme Court justice Kurtis Wilder lost his election bid for a full term on the court, but he'll still be hearing arguments in five cases Monday.

Court spokesman John Nevin says Wilder will participate in all decisions that are to be written before his current term ends on Jan. 1.

In addition to Monday’s arguments, the Court's website says they will hear oral arguments on two days in December.

Wilder was appointed to the Court by Governor Rick Snyder in 2017. This was his first time running for a full term on the bench.

He came in third, but only two seats on the court were up for election.

Megan Cavanagh won one of those seats and will become the court's newest justice on Jan. 1. Elizabeth Clement, also appointed by Snyder in 2017, won the other one, and will begin her first eight-year term.
