Court Orders Exam Of Judge’s Mental Health

LANSING (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court has ordered a judge to undergo a mental health exam.

The judge’s name was not disclosed in an order released Friday. The judge’s attorney, Brian Einhorn, says the judge went on leave earlier this year because of a physical problem and remains off the bench. He declined to elaborate.

The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission wants the judge suspended, but the Supreme Court didn’t go that far. The court says the judge must be examined for “psychiatric disorders.”

The review will include a December letter apparently sent by the judge to federal prosecutors. Einhorn says the judge has had some personal problems but is “doing OK.”
