MICHIGAN ATTORNEYS RECOGNIZED AT THE 29TH ANNUAL COOLEY LAW SCHOOL DISTINGUISHED BRIEF AWARD BANQUET

 

LANSING, Mich.  – July 11, 2014 – Six attorneys were recognized during the 29th annual Thomas M. Cooley Law Review Distinguished Brief Awards, on June 25 in Lansing. The awards recognized the most scholarly briefs filed before the Michigan Supreme Court, as determined by a panel of Cooley Law School professors.

“The purpose of this award is to recognize excellence in written advocacy,” said Rabih Hamawi, Symposium editor of the Thomas M. Cooley Law Review. “Because of the quality submissions received, six briefs were selected to be honored, which is a first in the Law Review’s 29-year history.”

The panel evaluated the briefs on seven criteria: question presented, point headings, statement of the case, argument and analysis, style, mechanics, and best overall brief. The six briefs selected included:

·         Clifford W. Taylor and Larry J. Saylor; Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, PLLC; Majestic Gold, LLC v. Lake Walden Country Club, Inc.

·         Anthony F. Caffrey III, R. Carl Lanfear and Paul M. Kittinger; Cardelli Lanfear, P.C.; Sholberg v. Truman

·         David A. McCreedy; Wayne County prosecutor; People v. Garrett

·         Jessica A. McGivney and John J. Bursch; Michigan Attorney General’s Office; Andrie, Inc. v. Department of Treasury

·         Paul D. Reingold; Michigan Clinical Law Program; Makowski v. Snyder

·         Daniel S. Korobkin, Michael J. Steinberg and Kary L. Moss; American Civil Liberties Union Fund of Michigan; Ter Beek v. Wyoming

 

Before the award ceremony, guests heard from the Hon. Bridget McCormack, Michigan Supreme Court Justice, who is also a previous recipient of Cooley’s Distinguished Brief Award.
