Judges, Prosecutors, and Other Vermin

It looks like a Michigan Supreme Court Justice may be looking for work.

According to the story from today’s The Detroit News online, “The U.S. government is seeking forfeiture of Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway’s posh second home in suburban Orlando, Fla., claiming she and her husband hid the asset to defraud a bank and escape $600,000 in mortgage debt.”

The US Attorney filed a civil forfeiture complaint, however it alleges criminal conduct was involved.


  1. I haven’t heard, but was the bankrupt judge that was running for reappointment to the court from Post Falls re elected? I think his name was Peterson or Pederson.

  2. Ancientemplar,

    I think you’re referring to Magistrate Judge Clark Peterson. About 81% of the voters recommended he be retained and about 19% recommended that he not be retained.
