A state judge who allegedly rants about “devil’s weed” and “Satan’s surge” while attaching biblical verses to legal opinions is being sued after he axed a deputy court administrator’s position in his office.
The judge did not approve of the administrator living with another judge, claiming the arrangement violated the court’s nepotism policy. When the Michigan Supreme Court disagreed with that interpretation, the judge eliminated the position.
The administrator sued in federal court, claiming religious discrimination, marital status discrimination, sex discrimination and retaliation under the Whistleblowers’ Protection Act.
