The following message is from NARSOL’s affiliate who is working with ACLU and Michigan’s legislators.
“The Sixth Circuit, in Does v. Snyder, already made clear that the 2006 and 2011 amendments to SORA cannot be applied retroactively. The same organizations that brought the Does case (the ACLU and University of Michigan Clinical Law Program), along with a private law firm, are developing a class action to ensure that all eligible Michigan registrants get the benefits of the Does decision. In addition, legislative discussions are underway to rewrite SORA. If individuals file their own actions, it could complicate the efforts of the Does attorneys to get relief for everyone. We discourage individual filings. Instead, we encourage you to contact Tim the ACLU of Michigan SOR Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being considered as a plaintiff in the class action case or are willing to help with efforts to get the law changed. Please provide all of your contact information and a short summary of your conviction information.”
