Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Kurt Wilder returns to Butzel Long
Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Kurtis Wilder is returning to his old stomping grounds, Butzel Long, as of counsel in the law firm's Detroit office, where he worked early in his career.
After having spent nearly 20 years on the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Republican-backed justice was appointed to the state Supreme Court by former Gov. Rick Snyder in May 2017, three weeks after Robert Young Jr. resigned. Wilder lost his Supreme Court seat to private attorney Megan Cavanagh in November.
Wilder, 59, joined Butzel in 1989 as a litigation attorney, according to spokeswoman Maribeth Farkas, and left in 1992.
