Justice Larsen wins 2-year Supreme Court term

Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen has won a partial term on the state’s highest court.
Larsen defeated Wayne County Judge Deborah Thomas and lawyer Kerry Morgan in the election Tuesday. She was appointed to the court in 2015 and now will serve the two years remaining in the term of a justice who resigned.
Larsen was nominated by the Republican Party. She was a University of Michigan law professor when she was appointed by GOP Gov. Rick Snyder. She worked at the U.S. Justice Department earlier in her career and was a law clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Thomas was nominated by the Democratic Party, although party affiliation isn’t listed in court races. It was her second run for the state Supreme Court.  (AP)
