The chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court says allegations of bank fraud against another justice are a "dreadful development."
Chief Justice Robert Young Jr. says Justice Diane Hathaway or her attorney should "clear the air" and explain what happened.
Young was reacting Tuesday to a forfeiture lawsuit filed by federal prosecutors who want control of Hathaway's home in Windermere, Fla. The government says Hathaway and her husband transferred the property to a relative while they talked to a bank about a short sale on their home in Grosse Pointe Park.
After the short sale went through, the Florida home went back to Hathaway. The government says Hathaway committed fraud.
