O'Reilly Rancilio P.C. Special Counsel to Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel filed a lawsuit on February 29, 2012, against the Macomb County Commission requesting that the Macomb County Circuit Court determine the powers and duties of the County Executive and the County Commission under the new Macomb County Charter.
The Court Executive disputes the claims of powers and duties made by the County Commission under the Charter which became effective January 1, 2011. The issues relate to the scope of the Commission's authority over operations of County government. Attorneys Lawrence M. Scott and Donald P. DeNault, Jr., will be handling the lawsuit on behalf of the Firm. The Firm was named Special Counsel by Mark Hackel in early 2011.
