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.

    This is just the begining of issues that will surface. The only reason that this has gotten so big is she refused to step down in January. Ingham County has some of the worst Judges and best. From the Chief Judges' to the ones that truely follow their heart (the ones that don't make their based upon personalities of the attorney or the conduct of the parties.)
