Ottawa County Judge Kenneth Post has told the Michigan Supreme Court that he accepts the findings of the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission and is ready to serve a suspension from the bench.

Post's attorneys sent the memo to the court on March 22.

In the memo, Post admits that he was rude in court with an attorney and regrets comments that he made.  He requests the Supreme Court follow the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission recommendation that he be suspended for 30 days, so he can then return to the court.

In 2011, Post ordered defense attorney Scott Millard to jail for advising his client not to answer a question. The commission cited "irresponsible or improper conduct that eroded public confidence."

This gentelman has abused his authority for far too long.

Thankfully, lawyers NEVER do this. Judge Post is only doing to a lawyer that most of us can only dream about. 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

At least he admits to his wrongdoing and is not battling it through endless administrative wrangling. Now the lucky guy gets to go fishing for the next month.

This man should be removed permanently.
