Hathaway Pleads Guilty to Bank Fraud

Posted: Wednesday, January 30, 2013

On Tuesday, January 29, 2013, former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway pleaded guilty to bank fraud. Reports of her deal with federal prosecutors indicate that she may face up to 18 months in prison.

Justice Hathaway had retired from the Court effective January 21, 2013, amid allegations of financial misconduct relating to a “short sale” of her Grosse Pointe Park home. These allegations led to the Judicial Tenure Commission (JTC) filing a formal Complaint against her. Click here to read the formal Complaint (or right-click and "Save Link As" to download).

The formal Complaint was accompanied by a Petition for Interim Suspension. The Petition is also available on the JTC website; click here to read it (or right-click to download).

Rather than go through that process, Justice Hathaway announced her retirement, but that only resolved her problems with the Judicial Tenure Commission; the criminal charges remained. Her plea deal now resolves those criminal charges.

Her retirement opened a seat on the Court, which will be filled by a replacement selected by Governor Snyder. Hathaway is a Democrat and the governor is expected to appoint a Republican replacement. This would increase the Republican majority control of the Michigan Supreme Court from 4-3 to 5-2.
