On October 4, 2011, Governor Rick Snyder signed SB 77 into law (now PA 162 of 2011). As we noted here, the new law solves the problems created by the Michigan Supreme Court's 2006 Ostroth ruling. The new law restores the applicable limitation periods to their previous durations, and restores the long-established rules that govern them.
