Throwback Thursday

25 years ago this month:

  • The Michigan Supreme Court removed a judge who had (1) routinely solicited and accepted bribes in return for improperly disposing of matters (generally traffic citations), (2) routinely engaged in ex parte communications, (3) routinely accepted and failed to report improper gifts, favors, and loans from litigants, (4) personally retained a close friend as an attorney to prepare a writ of habeas corpus for an incarcerated person the judge believed to be the friend of another close friend and signed the writ releasing the individual without being fully informed of the facts, (5) intentionally misrepresented his residential address on an automobile insurance application to defraud the insurance company, and (6) solicited an individual to commit perjury in a federal investigation of the judge. In the Matter of Jenkins, 465 N.W.2d 317 (Michigan 1991).
