Center for Civil Justice
The state of Michigan can take away welfare benefits under a five-year federal limit even if recipients still might qualify for cash under state law, a state appeals court ruled Wednesday.
Jackie Doig, of the Saginaw-based Center for Civil Justice, says only about 100 of the 11,000 families that lost benefits starting last October have had them restored, despite a March court order telling the state to do so.
Michigan’s Center for Civil Justice has recently launched their new Web site. The new site, developed by 3Sixty Interactive, is intended to provide Michigan residents with information on current issues and access to resources for those in need.
