Midland County Judge Investigated for Sexual Harassment Claims

Posted: Updated:

A Midland County judge is accused of making inappropriate comments to some female court employees.

Now court officials are asking Michigan's Judicial Disciplinary Board to investigate Chief District Judge John Hart.

Three county judges issued a statement saying a labor lawyer was hired to investigate.

That investigator says Hart's actions didn't rise "to the level of sexual harassment, but were inappropriate and merited referral to the judicial tenure commission."
