LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan will delay a key change in its evaluation system for teachers and schools administrators under legislation signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The laws enacted Tuesday will halt, at least for a year, a requirement that student growth and assessment data be given greater weight in educators’ year-end performance evaluations.

UNDATED (AP) — A Michigan college student says pro-Trump operatives recruited him to falsely claim he was raped by Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, then published the smear without his permission. Hunter Kelly, a gay Trump supporter, says conservative activists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman concocted the “despicable scheme” to blunt Buttigieg’s momentum and help Trump. The incident may offer a glimpse into disinformation tactics that could become routine during the 2020 campaign.

DETROIT (AP) — Lawyers for former Michigan health director Nick Lyon are vigorously opposing an effort to put his Flint water criminal case on hold for six months, saying it’s a sign of the prosecution team’s “dysfunction.” The attorney general’s office says it needs a timeout so it can dig through 23 boxes of records found in the basement of a state building. But defense attorney Chip Chamberlain doubts the records are relevant to Lyon’s case. He says prosecutors were aware of the boxes in February.

CLIO, Mich. (AP) — A mid-Michigan high school gym teacher has been arrested after allegedly video-recording a naked 14-year-old girl at a tanning parlor. Forty-two-year-old Jacob Emmendorfer was arraigned Tuesday on charges of child sexually abusive activity, capturing or distributing an image of an unclothed person, and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime. Police say Emmendorfer was arrested Monday at Tropi Tan Spa in Clio after the girl saw a cellphone dangling over a wall.
