MSC Orders on February 8, 2013 Include Suspension Without Pay of Wayne County Judge McCree

Among the actions of the Michigan Supreme Court on February 8, 2013, the Court ordered Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Wade H. McCree immediately suspended without pay pending outcome of sealed disciplinary proceedings.

The Court also granted an application for leave dealing with issues related to forfeiture of bail bonds. In re Forfeiture of Bail Bond (People v. Gaston & You Walk Bail Bond Agency) presents the Court with the issues of: (1) whether a court's failure to comply with the 7-day notice provision of MCL 765.28 bars forfeiture of bond posted by a surety; and (2) whether In re Forfeiture of Bail Bond, 276 Mich. App. 482 (2007), holding that the 7-day notice provision is discretionary rather than mandatory, was correctly decided.
