ACLU Files Motion Requesting Chief Judge Return Second Parent Adoption Cases

June 14, 2002

The ACLU of Michigan filed a motion today requesting that Chief Judge Archie Brown return the second parent adoption cases to Judge Donald E. Shelton. Judge Brown had removed the cases from Judge Shelton's docket because he disagreed with Shelton's rulings on these kinds of cases. If Judge Brown is unwilling to grant the motion, the ACLU is requesting that he disqualify himself due to bias.
