Court Has Ruled Against Victims of Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault
LANSING – It’s taken four GOP Justices on the Michigan Supreme Court to rule repeatedly against victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault. It takes three new Justices to restore fairness and balance to the Court: Judge Connie Marie Kelley, Judge Shelia Johnson, and Law Professor Bridget McCormack.
“We need Justices on the Michigan Supreme Court who are going to rule on the facts of the case and give everyone a fair shot,” Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said. “This is a Republican-controlled Court that has no regard for women’s rights in the workplace. This Republican-controlled Court ruled against a woman who was raped at work after asserting to her employer that her workplace was unsafe.” (Brown v. Brown, No. 131358, 2007)
“It’s obvious this Court is not interested in protecting women’s rights,” added Brewer. “Kelley, Johnson, and McCormack will be fair on the bench and will preserve laws that were enacted to protect women. It’s time for the Supreme Court to start protecting Michigan families and not making it difficult for them to get justice.”
“It takes three to right the wrongs of the Court,” said Brewer. “It takes three to restore balance and fairness and those three are Kelley, Johnson, and McCormack.”
