"In many other states, judges may reject a literal interpretation of the law if they believe it would lead to an absurd result. But Michigan's Supreme Court majority has held that it is for the Legislature, not the courts, to decide when the absurdity threshold has been breached."
I thought it was the courts job to interpret the law? It seems the Michigan Supreme Court has given that power to the Legislative branch.
Legislative = makes the law
Executive = enforces the law
Judicial = interprets the law
I'm not a lawyer, but I did stay at a holiday inn last night.
