ADM File No. 2021-35: Proposed Amendment to MCR 7.202
The proposed amendments of MCR 7.202 and MCR 7.209 offer an alternative to the proposal published for comment on June 22, 2022. The proposed amendments would eliminate certain orders denying governmental immunity to a governmental party from the definition of a “final judgment” or “final order” for purposes of subchapter 7.200 of the Michigan Court Rules, thereby eliminating the need for a stay of proceedings in those cases under MCR 7.209(E)(7).
