LANSING, Mich. – The American Civil Liberties Union is filing suit to have the Michigan Capitol building reopened.

Earlier today, the Capitol building was closed to citizens by legislators in response to the protestors who are against the right-to-work bill.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit to reopen the Mich. Capitol building.

Senate Democrat’s secretary says they are in full support of the ACLU’s lawsuit to have the Capitol reopened.

According to the Michigan State Police, the reason the building is still closed is the large crowd that is still outside the Senate chamber.
