Michigan Goes They/Them

In Michigan, judges and courts are now required to use transgender pronouns if they are asked to. This comes from a new law that was approved from the Michigan Supreme Court.

This rule will go into effect next year. It means that any party can request any pronoun, including “they,” and specify in initial court documents how they’d like to be addressed.

But what if the evidence identifies a person as a different gender than they identify? We’ll work it out, says the Supreme Court.

Attorneys, witnesses or other parties to a case do not have to comply with this. So if someone was assaulted by a man, they don’t have to pretend it court that the accused is a woman.
