An Ottawa County judge's decision to reverse a contempt charge strikes accord with defense attorneys' ability to do their jobs without being punished.
Ottawa County Chief Circuit Judge Ed Post on Monday reversed a contempt decision made by Ottawa County District Court Judge Kenneth Post.
West Michigan is under a winter storm watch beginning Thursday afternoon through Friday evening.
The watch area includes Ottawa, Mason, Lake, Osceola, Oceana, Newaygo, Muskegon, Kent, Allegan, Barry, Van Buren and Kalamazoo counties.
Four organizations are involved in Friend of the Court briefs asking Ottawa County Circuit Chief Judge Edward Post to dismiss contempt charges against attorney Scott Millard, who was jailed earlier this month by Ottawa County District Judge Kenneth Post.
