A person has told The Associated Press that Michigan Supreme Court Justice Maura Corrigan will quit to become head of the state's welfare agency.

The person said Monday that an announcement by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is expected this week and Corrigan likely would leave the court by Jan. 14. The person, who is familiar with leadership changes at the Department of Human Services, spoke on condition of anonymity.

Corrigan, a conservative, has been on the Supreme Court since 1999 and was chief justice for four years. Conservatives are back in the court's majority after the fall election.

Corrigan's departure means Snyder will pick his first Supreme Court justice, just days into his new administration
