Detroit police monitor censured for Kilpatrick affair

A Baltimore, Md, attorney who was appointed to monitor an effort to reform the Detroit Police Department, but ended up closely monitoring former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s pants instead, has been publicly censured by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. [The Detroit News].

An appeals court has disciplined Sheryl Robinson Wood, the lawyer overseeing Detroit police reforms who resigned in disgrace two years ago, for having “intimate contact” with Kwame Kilpatrick when he was Detroit’s mayor.

According to the story, the city had sued Wood’s old law firms to recoup the $10 million in fees it paid for her monitoring services. It settled the case last month for $350,000.
