REDFORD TOWNSHIP (WWJ/AP) – A Wayne County judge has ordered state Treasurer Andy Dillon and his ex-wife to have no contact unless it involves their children.
Andy Dillon and Carol Dillon each asked for personal protection orders. Judge Susan Hubbard turned down those requests Tuesday, but court records show she issued a restraining order.
Andy Dillon’s attorney, James Harrington, says this means no contact with very few exceptions. He said the order is appropriate and that Andy Dillon doesn’t want to be distracted from his state job.
“The judge has made her ruling denying the PPOs, and granting a mutual restraining order and both parties should move on,” Harrington said in a statement to WWJ Newsradio 950.
The order states, in part, ” … IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff and Defendant are mutually restrained from assaulting, attacking, threatening, molesting, stalking, following, or wounding each other. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the parties are mutually restrained from contacting each other by phone, mail, or media, except regarding the minor child.” [View a copy of the order].
Andy Dillon accused his ex-wife of making threats and recently stealing his state phone from a car. He said it had confidential information.
He said the phone was later returned by her to state police.
A message seeking comment couldn’t be left for Carol Dillon because her voicemail was full.
