OTHER FORTHCOMING ARTICLES
Our most recent article is The Current State of Successor Liability in Michigan and Why the Michigan Supreme Court’s Clarification is Necessary by Alex M. Petrik. The article will be published in 93-3 and is on the way to the publisher soon.
Mr. Petrik’s article provides a general overview of Michigan law governing successor liability as a framework for a critique of court decisions that have misapplied the law. Michigan’s rules regarding successor liability are, at best, in a state of confusion as exemplified by the Court of Appeals’ recent decision in Taizhou Golden Sun Arts & Crafts, Co., Ltd., v. Colorbök, LLC. The Michigan Supreme Court should clarify the rules regarding successor liability, and in doing so, should overrule RDM Holdings, LTD, v Continental Plastics Co., and Lakeview Commons v. Empower Yourself.
