An Ingham county judge who's facing a possible suspension is voluntarily leaving the bench for at least a week.

News Ten has learned Judge Beverley Nettles-Nickerson will not go to work until the state Supreme Court makes a decision on her case.

The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission is asking the court to suspend her based on a report claiming she committed perjury and called Ingham County’s chief judge a racist.

Her lawyer asked for and was granted a week to prepare her defense.

He says the suspension request is retaliation for Judge Nettles-Nickerson filing a racial discrimination complaint in January.
