Michigan AG to argue for Detroit school board removal

DETROIT (WJBK) -- Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette was in court today asking that seven members of the Detroit Board of Education be removed from their positions.

Schuette says the board members are holding office illegally because they were voted in by district, not at-large. State law requires school board members in communities with fewer than 100,000 students to be elected at-large.

Lawyers for the school board were also present during Thursday morning's hearing in front of Wayne Circuit Judge John Gillis Jr.

FOX 2 legal analyst Charlie Langton says Schuette is willing and ready to take his fight all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
