Last month, the regents voted to raise the cost of
residence halls by 4.6 percent. But they did not
discuss this $200 increase, instead focusing on
football games and the move-in experience.

State Supreme Court to resolve
legality of sobri
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A legal battle
stemming from the one-hour use of a sobriety
checklane nearly seven years ago moved into
its final stage yesterday with oral arguments
before the Michigan Supreme Court.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in 1990
that Michigan police didn't violate the U.S.
Constitution when they set up roadblocks and
stopped all motorists to check for signs of

of the state Supreme Court is if the Michigan
Constitution offers broader protection.
The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled 2-1

out any cause whatsoever," Granzotto said.
State Solicitor General Thomas Casey
countered that the goal of reducing drunken
driving plus the minimal privacy intrusion
made the checklanes a reasonable step.
Casey pointed out that in the sole checklane
done in Michigan, two motorists out of some
126 stopped were arrested for drunken driving.
That checklane was done on May 17, 1986, in
The justices peppered Casey with questions
about specifics of checklane operations, then
got into deeper issues.
