Professor Yared shares "As is always the case it is small steps forward on social justice issues, followed by backlash. Recently, in a Michigan Court of Appeals decision two judges on a panel of 3, acknowledged and spoke positively about the use of proper pronouns in the case, and the third judge wrote a concurring opinion for the sole purpose of ranting against the use of appropriate pronouns. After reading this case those of us on the Council of the LGBTQ Section of the MI Bar Association wrote a letter to MI Supreme Court Justice McCormick and the Chief Judge of the MI Court of Appeals and we are in dialogue about training and a style guide for the judges in the state. We previously conducted two optional training sessions and are making headway."
