SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court has crossed the Mackinac Bridge for the first time, hearing a case in the Upper Peninsula as part of an effort to take its work outside Lansing.

The case is a dispute over liability in a golf cart crash in suburban Detroit. A golfer was hurt when he was struck by a cart driven by another golfer. Is it a case of ordinary negligence or a higher legal standard known as reckless misconduct?

The court heard arguments Wednesday at Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie. Michigan’s top court has had two justices from Sault Ste. Marie, the last in 1973.

There were some light exchanges between lawyers and justices. Justice Bridget McCormack says she doesn’t play golf. Justice David Viviano says he plays, although not as well as others.
