Morris For Supreme Court (D)
A better time could not come for Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Denise Langford Morris, an exceptional and vibrant legal mind who fully understands that the scales of justice must be balanced.
After years of protecting victims of domestic abuse and fighting to ensure justice for all, Morris, now is vying for a seat on the most important state court, the Michigan Supreme Court.
We support Langford Morris’ bid to sit on the state’s highest court because she has demonstrated time and again that the law should be used fairly no matter who is answering to the charges in court. Her legal experience spans across decades of aiding disabled adults and fighting for seniors.
As the first African American circuit court judge in Oakland County, and the first female on the bench, Morris brings a wide range of experience with her. We believe her background and deep knowledge of the law and how it ought to be interpreted fairly, and not for political expediency, makes her qualified to become our next justice on the Supreme Court.
Morris received her juris doctor from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. She has extensive trial experience, including civil and criminal, state and federal, as a private practitioner, assistant Oakland County prosecutor, and assistant United States attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan.
Judge Denise Langford Morris has presided over voluminous criminal cases including many with high profile defendants such as Dr. Jack Kevorkian and hip-hop star Eminem. She also handles extensive complex civil litigation in the fourth wealthiest county in America, including multimillion dollar land and contract disputes involving major corporations.
