Governor Rick Snyder has chosen the newest member of the Michigan Supreme Court.
Judge Kurtis Wilder is the first of a couple appointments Governor Snyder has to make in the coming weeks.
Wilder is a former Chief Judge of the Washtenaw County Trial Court. He currently serves on the state Court of Appeals.
Governor Snyder says Wilder has already done great work to help the state.
“And he’s built a long successful track record of being a good, rule of law judge.”
