LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court has declined to expedite an appeal in the Republican-led Legislature's lawsuit challenging Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home restrictions.

A judge ruled in her favor two weeks ago.

Both lawmakers and the governor wanted the high court to skip the appeals court and hear the case now.

But in a 4-3 ruling Thursday, the court said the case should follow the normal process.
