Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Bill Collette is critical of legislation that would move the Michigan Court of Claims from Ingham County to the Michigan Court of Appeals. Current State spoke with Ingham County Controller Tim Dolehanty about the impact such a move might have on the county.

Dolehanty says the county would have to revisit a budget that was passed less than three weeks ago, and the adjustment would mean some job cuts would be necessary.
