Michigan Supreme Court sets new deadline in misconduct case
INKSTER, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court is extending the deadline for a report on possible misconduct by a Detroit-area judge.
Sylvia James, a District Court judge in Inkster, is accused of misspending more than $100,000, either for her personal use or for community projects unrelated to the court. The Supreme Court wanted a recommendation from the Judicial Tenure Commission by mid-May, but the deadline has been pushed to June 15.
James denies any wrongdoing. A hearing with six weeks of testimony was held earlier this year.
Justice Stephen Markman again expressed his displeasure with the Supreme Court allowing James to collect her pay while on leave. She has been off the job for about a year.
