The Michigan Court of Appeals Friday blocked an Ingham County judge's order that an aide to Gov. Rick Snyder turn over the names of all candidates for the Detroit emergency manager position.

The three-judge court halted hearings and depositions in the lawsuit, filed by Detroit activist Robert Davis, which says Detroit EM Kevyn Orr's appointment was illegal because it violated the Open Meetings Act. The appellate court also said that an aide to Snyder did not have to turn over all emails related to the appointment.
