In February 2021, Rand filed a Writ of Mandamus against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan Department of Corrections Director Heidi Washington, MDOC Chief Medical Officer Carmen McIntyre, M.D., and MDOC Central Michigan Correctional Facility Warden John Christiansen claiming that they have not performed their public duty in accordance with their oath of office and the public duty doctrine due to the crisis of COVID-19 inside Michigan prisons that they are responsible for.
In 2020-2021 Rand has been challenging the potentially illegal denials of his parole by the Michigan Parole Board. The following documents were submitted as part of a Write of Mandamus to the 29th Circuit Court in Ithaca, MI on January 29, 2021.
Rand also has engaged in a fight with Oakland county to challenge his sentencing and other aspects of his case. Below are some of the documents he has drafted as part of this battle.
Rand also sent out this template of a letter that his supporters could send to the parole board when the time comes.
