(WXYZ) - Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Deborah Ross Adams is accused of lying under oath, forging her lawyer's signature to a court document and lying to the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission (JTC).
Adams is accused of doing this during her divorce proceedings last year, according to the JTC’s three-count complaint. She was married to former Detroit Deputy Mayor Anthony Adams for 31 years
The JTC complaint also says that Adams repeatedly called the staff of Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Mary Ellen Brennan, who presided over her divorce case, though she was told it was improper and that she should stop contacting the court.
7 Action News tried contacting Adams, but she could not be reached.
JTC officials also could not be reached for comment, but their complaint states that the body has asked the Michigan State Supreme Court to hold a hearing on the matter.
