In re detention of D.F.F. SANDERS, J. 
—"We are asked to decide whether Superior Court Mental Proceedings Rules (MPR) 1.3, which provides involuntary commitment proceedings “shall not be open to the public, unless the person who is the subject of the proceedings or his attorney files with the court a written request that the proceedings be public,”  

"I believe we must speak our conscience in moments that demand it, 

even if we are but one voice" 

Richard Sanders
