The Pursuit of Jurisprudential Significance in the Supreme Court

posted on July 26, 2013 by Willingham & Cote

Although practitioners are typically required to demonstrate jurisprudential significance in order to have their case heard by the Michigan Supreme Court, the meaning of
jurisprudential significance has never been formally defined. At a recent appellate
bench bar conference, the Supreme Court Justices provided insight into their individual
interpretation of the jurisprudential significance concept. It would behoove the appellate practitioner to meet these interpretations if the practitioner does not want his or her client’s application for leave to appeal to be denied.
