UAW Endorses Samuel Bagenstos for Justice
Today, the United Auto Workers announced its endorsement of Samuel Bagenstos's campaign for the Michigan Supreme Court. The UAW explained in a press release:
“After careful screening UAW members believe that Megan Cavanagh and Sam Bagenstos will judge with integrity and sensitivity to the working men and women of Michigan,” said Dennis Williams President of the UAW.
Bagenstos is a nationally respected litigator of civil rights cases.
A Harvard Law School graduate, Bagenstos clerked for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, served as the number 2 official in the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights division under President Barack Obama and is a Professor at the University of Michigan Law School specializing in Constitutional and Civil Rights.
“Sam Bagenstos is one of the most respected legal minds in the areas of Civil Rights and Constitutional laws. Michigan has an opportunity to elect a Justice whose legal knowledge is nationally recognized and who will ground the Michigan Supreme Court in solid decision making for working families,” said Williams.
