I need someone to research and draft a legal memo on the issue of when is a party required to verify a pleading as provided in Michigan Court Rule 2.114. For example, sometimes an attorney can sign a complaint and other times the plaintiff is required to "verify" the complaint. Please research and provide the answer as to when is a party required to verify a pleading, and when is the same not required, but permitted. I can provide some research materials to start from, but you'll need to go more in-depth researching on your own to provide a quality memo.

I need an article drafted about how the recent USSC gay marriage ruling this past June will impact family law and estate planning in Michigan. I need the article drafted into two separate parts: (1) about family law, and (2) about estate planning. I will provide you with the materials/research to use to draft your article. The materials will not take very long to review (approx. 10 pages). I can't provide you with a word count that I'm looking for. I'm looking for a quality piece of writing that explains the information in an easy to understand manner that a lay person can understand.
