LANSING (WXYZ) - The Judicial Tenure Commission (JTC) dropped its complaint against former Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway.
Last month the JTC, which is a state agency responsible for policing judges, filed a complaint against Hathaway last month. It accused her of fraud and money laundering. But today the JTC announced they're dismissing the complaint because Hathaway is no longer a sitting judge.
The 7 Action News Investigators broke the story of how Hathaway hid assets from her bank in order to convince her lender to forgive $600,000 in mortgage debt. Our report resulted in an FBI investigation and a criminal charge against Hathaway.
Last month she pleaded guilty to bank fraud and is awaiting sentencing, which is scheduled for May.
Hathaway still faces other possible discipline, including the loss of her law license.
