Press Release of Michigan Democratic Party:

Oakland County Circuit Judge is Clone of GOP Justices Who Rule for Special Interests

LANSING – If voters are looking for more of the same – Justices who don’t protect Michigan families and children and instead protect special interests like insurance companies, big banks, oil companies, and drug companies – then Judge Colleen O’Brien is the ideal candidate.

O’Brien has a history of ruling for special interests in Oakland County and taking their campaign donations. As a judge, she ruled for big banks when they foreclosed on a couple’s home after the couple were victims of a mortgage fraud scam (Edwards v. Gustavo, Case No. 2006-072665-CZ, 2006). As an insurance company attorney, O’Brien fought to deny medical benefits to a cancer patient, claiming the cancer was a “pre-existing condition.” And special interests like insurance companies have even helped to fund her campaigns.

“Colleen O’Brien is just more of the same,” Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said. “We need Justices on the Michigan Supreme Court who will stand up for Michigan families and children. We need justices who won’t be afraid to stand up to the special interests. O’Brien will continue to rule against Michigan families and children and for insurance companies, oil companies, drug companies, and big banks over victims.”

“It’s time the Supreme Court started standing up for justice,” added Brewer. “Connie Kelley, Shelia Johnson, and Bridget McCormack will be Justices who will be impartial and make sure everyone has a fair shot in Court. O’Brien will cater to the powerful special interests who fund her and the other GOP Justices’ campaigns. It’s time for a change on the Court.”
