The chief judge of 36th District Court was removed as chief, but will remain on the bench

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit's financially-strapped 36th District Court is facing more change with today's removal of Judge Kenneth King as the chief judge.

The court has been embroiled in financial crisis. 

A recent study says the 36 th District Court has serious financial issues, including a budget overrun of $4.5 million this year.

In May, the Michigan State Supreme court appointed Court of Appeals Judge Michael Talbot as a special judicial administrator over 36h District Court.

King will continue to serve on the bench.
