Governor Rick Snyder has appointed Michael Gadola to the Michigan Court of Appeals seat vacated by retiring Judge William Whitbeck.
“Mike is an outstanding addition to the Court of Appeals,” Governor Snyder said. “He is widely respected for his legal acumen, as well as his personal and professional integrity. This appointment will expand Mike’s impressive record of public service. I have every confidence that he will uphold the court’s highest standards through his commitment to fairness and thoughtful reasoning.”
Gadola has served as the governor’s legal counsel since 2011. He served as counsel to the Michigan Supreme Court and general counsel to the State Court Administrative Office from 2001 to 2010. He also previously served as House majority counsel, deputy legal counsel to former Gov. John Engler, director of the Office of Regulatory Reform, and as an attorney with Dickinson, Wright, Moon, VanDusen & Freeman in Detroit and Lansing.
