A stipulation was entered in what has been called “Does v. Snyder II”, giving the Michigan Legislature 90 days to fix their unconstitutional sex offender law.
In Does v. Snyder, the 6th circuit found the retroactive application of amendments to Michigan’s sex offender laws to violate the constitution under ex post facto grounds. To do that, they had to find that the registry was punishment.
It seems lawmakers in Michigan are working on a fix, because both sides stipulated to an order giving them 90 days to roll something out.
