      Students get front-row seat for Michigan Supreme Court case

      The Michigan Supreme Court is taking its robes to Big Rapids.

      The Michigan Supreme Court is taking its robes to Big Rapids.

      The justices are hearing arguments Wednesday at Big Rapids High School in the case of an injured motorcyclist. Lejuan Rambin is suing to get insurance benefits, but he had no valid Michigan license.

      And there's another wrinkle: He borrowed the motorcycle from a friend in 2009 but it was actually stolen.

      The Michigan appeals court says Rambin didn't know the motorcycle was stolen so his use was not unlawful. But insurance companies are asking the Supreme Court to intervene.

      Students from many high schools and Ferris State University will have front-row seats.
