michigan (1)Decision by State of Michigan Court of Appeals

“We are pleased with the Court of Appeals decision to uphold Judge Caretti’s ruling in the Macomb County Circuit Court.  We would also like to thank the Michigan Library Association who aided us in both cases by filing of an Amicus Brief on our behalf.  We would also like to thank Lance Werner, director of Kent District Library, for his assistance in helping us in our efforts to prevent this lawsuit in the first place.  We are also grateful to our director, John McNaughton and his staff for keeping the operations of the library at the levels our patrons deserve and expect from both locations.  We hope to move on from this very time consuming and costly issue and focus on bringing our patrons and taxpayers nothing but the best. Our partnerships with Washington, Romeo and Bruce are paramount to a healthy, thriving library system.”

President, Romeo District Library Board
