By: Bodman PLC

01/07/15

The Michigan Supreme Court has appointed Bodman PLC attorney Thomas Van Dusen to a third term on the Committee on Model Civil Jury Instructions.

The committee is composed of judges and attorneys whose duty is to ensure that model civil jury instructions used in Michigan courts are concise, understandable, conversational, unslanted, and not argumentative. The committee has the authority to amend or repeal existing instructions and, when appropriate, adopt new instructions.

Van Dusen is a member of Bodman’s Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Group. He advises clients in the areas of commercial, insurance, and personal injury defense litigation including arbitration hearings, bench trials, jury trials, and appeals.

Van Dusen is listed in The Best Lawyers in America under Commercial Litigation, in Benchmark Litigation as a Litigation Star, and in Michigan Super Lawyers under Business Litigation. He is a member of the American Arbitration Association, the National Diocesan Attorneys Association, and the Oakland County Circuit Court’s Case Evaluator Panel. Van Dusen is a cum laude graduate of the University of Michigan Law School.
