High court schedules oral arguments

The state Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Tuesday in cases that include matters involving notice of intent to file medical malpractice suits and termination of parental rights.

In one of the cases, a woman received a kidney transplant but suffered injury because the kidney was not properly checked for a “cross-match” prior to transplant, and it was subsequently discovered that there was a positive match.

She filed a medical malpractice action. State statute requires a waiting period of 182 days or more to file a complaint. The complaint was filed 112 days after serving notices of intent.

The court will hear the appeals in its courtroom on the sixth floor of the Michigan Hall of Justice beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Oral arguments are open to the public.
