Former Mich. Justice Censured for Airing Deliberations

The Michigan Supreme Court has issued a pointed and public rebuke of a former justice, Elizabeth Weaver, for making secret recordings of internal court deliberations and releasing some of the transcripts.

The court released a copy of a Nov. 17 letter to Weaver, signed by five of the court’s seven justices, in which they say “it is truly a sad day when this Court is forced to censure a former colleague.”

The censure stems from Weaver’s release in October of partial transcripts of a meeting of the court to discuss a pending case in 2004. She said the transcripts showed that Justice Robert Young Jr. had used inappropriate language and should not be re-elected.
