CONSUMER’S PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER YOUNG
Rudy Serra – Attorney
On May 8, 2009, The Detroit Free Press (pg 19A) discussed “two landmark cases” from 1999 and 2007, both of which were written by Michigan Supreme Court Justice Robert Young.
Young is one of the “Federalist Four” (extreme right-wing Republican activist judges) who was appointed by former Governor John Engler. He is an activist judge who routinely legislates from the bench to help big business and harm consumers.
The Free Press stated that “both rulings contravened 23 years” of consumer protection law that held “unscrupulous businesses accountable for deceptive and unfair practices.”
Young decided that big corporations that were licensed to do business in Michigan were exempt from the law that protects consumers from fraud and cheating.
Thanks to Young “Dishonest merchants can take advantage of customers, and there’s nothing that can be done about it. That includes nearly every company in the top 3 complaint categories.”
