LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Joe Hune, R-Fowlerville, supported the decision of the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission to file a formal complaint against Livingston County Judge Theresa Brennan.
“I’m glad the commission was finally able to do its duty and file a formal complaint against Judge Brennan,” said Hune. “My office has been flooded with heartbreaking and infuriating stories from constituents who have been wronged by this person. It’s comforting to know that justice is still in the justice system, and hopefully this means that Brennan won’t be harming people anymore from her position of power.”
The commission filed a formal complaint against Brennan Tuesday for 11 separate violations including failure to disclose, improper demeanor and providing misrepresentations under investigation. The complaint also showed that Brennen failed to act in a conduct and manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary. Her behavior demonstrated a pattern counter to the precept that the judicial system is for the benefit of the litigant and the public, and not the judiciary.
The Judicial Tenure Commission’s complaint will now go to the Michigan Supreme Court which will decide on the ultimate penalties for Brennan’s actions.
“These are serious and embarrassing violations,” said Hune. “Again, I urge Judge Brennan to do the right thing and resign before this debacle continues on any further.”
