What Michigan judges should I vote for on Nov. 2?

October 28, 2010 by Steven M. Gursten

Steve Gursten recommends fair judges and justices who he believes will best protect Michigan families and consumers

Being an attorney, this is the time of year when I normally have about a hundred friends and old clients who call me up or e-mail me asking if I can recommend the best qualified justices for the Michigan Supreme Court – that they should vote for when they visit the polls next Tuesday. I understand, since I normally feel the same way when I get to the university trustees part of the ballot, as I have no idea who these people are. Most people find the justices and judges portion of the voting ballot confusing. No one wants to vote by just blindly picking names, and we all want to know who is truly the best candidate.

Below, I’ve listed the judges and justices who I personally believe are the best judicial candidates. These judges and justices all have a great reputation among Michigan lawyers. They are known for protecting families and consumers, and they believe in preserving the integrity of Michigan’s civil justice system. They’re also known for fairness and excellence on the bench.

Hon. Alton Thomas Davis
