The Michigan Supreme Court denied a leave to appeal request from Wexford County regarding a whistleblower case involving the Wexford County Sheriff’s Office and Wexford County Animal Shelter.
In the order dated March 7, the court said it denied the request because it was “not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by this Court prior to the completion of proceedings ordered by the Court of Appeals.”
As a result, the appeals court’s June 7 decision regarding the lawsuit filed by a former animal shelter employee Kathy Dennis reversing part of a previous judgment made by the trial court stands. It now will return to 13th Circuit Court after the stay that was placed on the case in September is removed. Click here for more on the story.
