LGBTQ Ally Vies for Seat on Michigan Supreme Court

Candidate Sam Bagenstos ‘More Committed Than Ever to Fighting for Equal Rights’

Considered by some to be the most important race for the people, the campaign for justice of the Michigan Supreme Court can often be overlooked when the public is particularly focused on the gubernatorial and congressional races. This year, two of the court’s seven seats are up for consideration and following the November election, 25-year strong civil rights attorney Sam Bagenstos is hoping to fill one of them.

“I really do think this is a crucial moment for our state Supreme Court,” he said. “We’re at a crossroads about whether this is a court that can be counted on to fill the gaps created by a conservative dominated federal judiciary or not.”
