Our thanks to Michigan Attorney Douglas L. Toering of Mantese Honigman, for bringing this article to our attention.  Mr. Toering has reported closely on Michigan’s business courts since their inception, and is an invaluable resource on developments in Michigan’s business courts.  He and Attorney Fatima Bolyea, another Michigan business court authority, conducted the interview with Justice Zahra.
