E-M:/ High court the target of effort

Group seeking legislative support for changes
TRAVERSE CITY -- Anne Magoun will lead a busload of local residents to Lansing to urge legislators to push reforms in campaign finance for state Supreme Court justices.

The high court's current election process spawns unnecessary conflicts of interest between elected justices and litigants in cases over which they preside, Magoun said.

State Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Weaver also is an advocate for change.

Weaver recently drafted two constitutional amendments to change the selection process and set term limits for justices.
