Justice Hathaway reportedly to resign effective January 21

Various news outlets are reporting that Justice Diane Hathaway will resign her seat on the Michigan Supreme Court, effective January 21. Justice Hathaway's resignation follows a civil asset forfeiture action initiated by the federal government against Hathaway relating to the short sale of one of her homes. Earlier today, the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission issued a formal complaint against Justice Hathaway, and asked the Michigan Supreme Court to immediately consider its motion for an interim suspension of Justice Hathaway.
