The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation is awaiting the next step in its lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Human Services.

The case, the first filed by the newly created public-interest law firm, seeks to prevent the state and two unions from siphoning off nearly $4 million in "dues" from subsidy checks that home-based day care operators receive when they care for the children of low-income parents.

An overview of the case can be found in this story, written by Patrick J. Wright, director of the MCLF, and Michael D. Jahr, Mackinac Center senior director of communications, which appears in The Weekly Standard today.
