Michigan’s Secretary of State is fighting back against a federal judge’s decision to temporarily prevent the state from suspending driver’s licenses when a person fails to pay fines from traffic violations.

Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, represented by Attorney General Bill Schuette and his staff, has asked the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals for an emergency stay on a preliminary injunction to block driver’s license suspensions for people who don’t pay.

The federal lawsuit, filed by the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Equal Justice Under Law, claims Michigan traffic fines are a “wealth-based scheme” that “trap our most vulnerable citizens in a vicious cycle of poverty.”
