East Lansing, MI – Teachers unions in Michigan are balking at the legislature's passage of a plan to prompt thousands of teachers and other school employees to retire. They say the measure is a disincentive that will end up costing more money than it will save.
The Michigan Education Association says the plan now heading to the governor's desk benefits too few people and comes too late in the school year to reap any real financial savings.
Defense lawyers are asking a U.S. Supreme Court justice to intervene and free nine members of a Michigan-based militia from jail.
Richard Helfrick and Todd Shanker say an appeals court followed the wrong standard in continuing to keep the nine in custody while the government challenges a ruling that would send them home until trial.
The petition was filed Friday with Justice John Paul Stevens, who has some authority over federal cases in Michigan.
