Michigan Legal MilestoneOne lazy summer day in 1911, Manistee residents Herbert Harley and Charles Ruggles discussed reform of the American justice system while floating in a skiff on Lake Michigan near here. That conversation led to the birth of the American Judicature Society, a national organization of more than 20,000 citizens—judges, lawyers and non-lawyers—dedicated to improving the nation's justice system.
