Judge Joyce Draganchuk of the Ingham County Circuit Court recently authorized the Attorney General to issue these subpoenas based upon an Ex Parte Petition. The Petition explains that preliminary information received by the Department's Corporate Oversight Division estimated that more than half a million calls related to the spoofing campaign are coming into Michigan each month. https://www.michigan.gov/ag/0,4534,7-359-92297_47203-577599--,00.html
