The justices of the Michigan Supreme Court selected Robert P. Young Jr. to serve for a third two-year term as chief justice of the court. Chief Justice Young has served on the court since 1999, and was elected and re-elected to the court in 2002 and 2010. He has served as chief justice since 2011.
Chief Justice Young says he plans to continue implementing innovations that will better measure court performance and increase efficiency while improving service to the public.
"Being allowed to stay on as chief justice allows us continuity to build on that record of success and move ahead with further reforms to make Michigan's judiciary a national model," Chief Justice Young said. "Continuing efforts to adopt best practices, implement technology, and re-engineer our courts are absolutely critical if Michigan is to remain a leader in court innovation and in improving service to the public."
