Last week, an Ingham County judge ordered Kosgar Lado, a 21-year old Lansing resident, to be held in the state psychiatric hospital in Kalamazoo for up to 15 months or until he can be deemed competent to stand trial for a felony charge of lying to police.

Legislation that would change the way lawsuits filed against the state are handled is headed to Governor Rick Snyder’s desk.

Lawsuits filed against the state would go to a new division of the Michigan Court of Appeals under a bill approved Wednesday by the state Senate.
