Michigan Supreme Court Boots Judge For Bad Behavior

The Michigan Supreme Court tossed suspended Livingston County judge Theresa Brennan off the bench after issuing a strongly worded opinion Friday afternoon. It cited a number of serious concerns, including tampering with evidence in her divorce case and having an affair with a detective who was a witness in a trial before her.

"Effective immediately, we order that respondent, 53rd District Court Judge Theresa M. Brennan, be removed from office. In addition, we impose a six-year conditional suspension without pay effective on the date of this decision."

The court also ruled, that should Brennan be elected or appointed a judge during her suspension, she will be banned from exercising any power and prerogatives during that time.

The opinion cited lies under oath in her divorce case, tampering with evidence in that proceeding; and failing to disclose her relationship with Michigan State Police Detective Sean Furlong during a trial before her.
