LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has vetoed Republican-sponsored legislation that would have let nursing homes house coronavirus-infected residents — but only in a building separate from other residents. In a letter to senators Friday, the Democratic governor said she has protected nursing home residents and the bill was “based on the false premise that isolation units created within existing facilities are somehow insufficient to protect seniors.” The measure had attracted some Democratic support, too. The bill was a response to the governor’s order that lets people with the virus be transferred and isolated in nursing homes that also have non-infected residents.

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Court of Appeals has granted an emergency motion releasing a 15-year-old suburban Detroit girl from a juvenile facility where a county judge sent her for failing do schoolwork and because the teen was a threat to her mother. An emergency order signed Friday releases the teen into her mother’s custody pending appeal or further order by the appeals court. ProPublica reported earlier this month that the girl has been in Oakland County’s Children’s Village since mid-May for violating probation in a case involving allegations of assault and theft. Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Mary Ellen Brennan initially cited a “failure to submit to any schoolwork and getting up for school” as behind her decision. 

DETROIT (AP) — A University of Michigan professor who became the school’s top academic officer committed sexual misconduct during his long career. That’s the conclusion of an investigation by a law firm hired by the university. The report says Martin Philbert harassed graduate students and staff and regularly had sex in campus offices. Philbert was fired as provost in March, weeks after being put on leave. President Mark Schlissel had promoted him in 2017. Philbert spent 25 years on campus, rising from toxicology professor to dean of the School of Public Health and then provost. He declined to speak to investigators.

LANSING, Mich (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says President Donald Trump’s plan to send federal agents to Detroit amid police brutality protests shows his administration doesn’t know anything about what is happening in Michigan. She also called out the Legislature, during a livestream with Everytown for Gun Safety Action and Moms Demand Action on Friday for refusing to work with her administration to address gun violence. Whitmer says people can make a difference at the polls, whether it be for the White House or statehouse.
