Judge reassigned amid allegations of abuse cover-up

DETROIT (AP) — A family court judge has been reassigned amid allegations she covered up evidence that her 11-year-old grandson was being beaten by his father.

Wayne County family court Judge Tracy Green has said she's "done nothing wrong" and denies the allegations.

Chief Wayne County Judge Timothy Kenny said Wednesday he's taken Green off the abuse and neglect docket until cases of parental rights termination and criminal child abuse involving her 31-year-old son are resolved.

WJBK-TV reported Green's grandson testified in March that the judge covered bruises on his face with makeup before he went to school.

Green denied seeing bruises or covering them up.

The Detroit News reports Green for now will hear only juvenile delinquency cases. Kenny said he met with Green and she agreed with the docket change.


Colorado law says inmates can’t be held at ICE request

DENVER (AP) — A new Colorado law says people suspected of being in the country illegally can't be kept in jail simply at the request of immigration officials.

Gov. Jared Polis signed the legislation Tuesday. It will take effect Aug. 2.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement can request that inmates suspected of an immigration violation be kept in jail until immigration agents can arrive to take custody of them. Colorado sheriffs have largely refused to honor such requests after courts ruled that keeping someone jailed without a warrant isn't constitutional. However, two sheriffs were sued last year for holding inmates for ICE.

Colorado Politics reports the bill would have originally barred jail staff from talking with immigration officials but was weakened to satisfy concerns raised by Polis. The law will bar probation officers from providing information to immigration agents.


Prince’s bodyguard deposed in wrongful death lawsuit

CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — Prince’s former bodyguard answered questions from attorneys for seven hours as part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by relatives of the late rock star.

Kirk Johnson’s attorney told KSTP-TV that Wednesday’s deposition at the Carver County Courthouse was difficult for his client, who considered Prince a good friend. Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose on April 15, 2016.

The lawsuit names Dr. Michael Schulenberg as a defendant. Authorities say Schulenberg admitted prescribing oxycodone, a different opioid, to Johnson in the days before Prince died, knowing the drug would go to Prince. Schulenberg has disputed that, although he paid $30,000 to settle a federal civil violation alleging the drug was prescribed illegally.

Schulenberg’s attorney has said his client stands behind the care Prince received.

The source of the counterfeit pills that were laced with fentanyl that killed Prince remains unknown. No one has been charged in his death.

The lawsuit alleges Schulenberg and others had an opportunity and duty in the weeks before Prince died to treat his opioid addiction and prevent his death, but they failed to do so.
