Mary Stallings Coleman

Mary S. Coleman (1914–2001) was a justice of the Michigan Supreme Court from 1973 until 1982.

Coleman was born in Texas but grew up in Washington, DC. She did her undergraduate work at the University of Maryland and received her law degree from George Washington University. She eventually settled in Marshall, Michigan.

She ran for the Michigan Supreme Court in 1972 and won the election and took office in 1973. She ran for re-election 1978. She retired in 1982 two years before her second term was up and Governor William Milliken appointed Lieutenant Governor James Brickley to replace her just before he and Brickley left office.

For much of her time on the supreme court Coleman was the chief justice.
