An activist who has repeatedly sued to challenge controversial laws signed by Gov. Rick Snyder is facing a corruption trial in September.
A judge on Monday set a Sept. 16 trial date for Robert Davis, who is accused of stealing $125,000 from the struggling Highland Park school district. Federal authorities say he used companies to submit false invoices for payment and then took a cut of the cash while on the school board.
His legal problems haven't diminished his activism. Davis has sued to try to stop Michigan's emergency manager law and the new right-to-work law. He tried to get Roy Roberts removed as Detroit schools emergency manager because Roberts failed to take an oath.
