HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court wants to hear more about a Livingston County woman who declined to undergo a random drug test as part of her son’s case in juvenile court.

Kelly Dorsey was found in contempt of court in 2012. She argues that a judge had jurisdiction over her son, who was a minor, but not her.

The Michigan appeals court agreed that drug testing the mother was unconstitutional. But it still affirmed the contempt finding. The court says orders must be followed - even if incorrect.

Now the state Supreme Court might take the case. It wants lawyers to deal with many issues, including whether Judge David Reader had authority to order Dorsey to take tests.
