The Michigan Supreme Court will hear oral argument on the appeal we filed in Foster v. Foster. This is a case Law Offices of Carson J. Tucker has been fighting on appeal since 2014.
After a unanimous United States Supreme Court decision in favor of the veterans’ position at the urging of Mr. Tucker by way an amicus curiae brief in the case of Howell v. Howell, a Supreme Court remand order, and not one, but two errant Court of Appeals opinions, oral argument will finally be presented to the Michigan Supreme Court.
