Michigan Supreme Court Disciplines District Court Judge

The Michigan Supreme Court concurred with the State Judicial Tenure Commission and ordered a 30-day suspension without pay, along with a public censure, for Hudsonville District Court Judge Kenneth Post. The discipline stems from a December, 2011 hearing in which Post jailed an attorney on contempt charges for advising a client to plead the Fifth in answering questions from the bench about drug use.

    The lawyer's job is to advise the client. What's wrong with that?

    Amazing, how prone to fits of irrational authority some judges become. Not a wonder we suffer.
