Granholm Names Judge To State Supreme Court

LANSING -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm has named Appeals Court Judge Alton Thomas Davis to the Michigan Supreme Court.
The move comes the same day that 69-year-old Justice Elizabeth Weaver resigned, only four months from the end of her second term, allowing the Democratic governor to name a replacement.
Weaver had been unlikely to get the Republican nomination for a third term and planned to run as an independent. But she tendered her resignation Thursday on the condition that the governor appoint a northern Michigan judge to replace her.
The appointment doesn't require the approval of the state Legislature.
Granholm appointed Davis to the Appeals Court in 2005.
