MSC Order List: December 15, 2011

The Michigan Supreme Court appointed Honorable Ann Mattson as Master to hear Formal Complaint No. 88 in In re Hon. Sylvia A. James, No. 143942, before the Judicial Tenure Commission ('JTC'). In that same case, the Court granted the petition for interim suspension with pay, and ordered the Master and the JTC to coordinate their schedules to ensure that the JTC recommendation of action, if any, be submitted within five months of the date of the order. Justice Markman dissented, in part, stating that given the potential harm to the integrity of the judiciary and the public trust in the judicial disciplinary process, he would order the respondent suspended without salary, and that her salary should be held in escrow pending resolution of the charges.
