The Michigan Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday that the Michigan Court of Appeals must explain why it rejected a lawsuit regarding the forced unionization of small-business owners, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation filed the lawsuit a year ago, on Sept. 16, 2009.

The Grand Rapids Press editorialized against the scheme, saying it "violates the basic constitutional rights of freedom of association," while the Livingston Daily Press & Argus also editorialized on the issue, calling it "an under-the-radar method of padding the union pockets."
