Censured 38th District Court judge faces five challengers

In the Detroit suburb of Eastpointe, 38th District Court Judge Norene Redmond, censured by the Michigan Supreme Court in February to the dismay of some and the delight of others (blog post and comments here), faces five challengers in the August primary.

The Detroit News has profiles of Redmond and the five candidates who would love to have her job. The attorney-contenders are:

  • Mark Cardellio, a former assistant prosecutor in Macomb and Oakland counties
  • Colleen Cohan, a former Eastpointe councilwoman who is the director of corporate ethics and compliance for Blue Care Network of Michigan
  • Andrea Ferrara, a former Wayne County circuit judge who was removed from the bench by the Michigan Supreme Court for misconduct in 1998; her private practice focuses on immigration and criminal cases
  • Kathleen G. Galen, who has practiced law for almost 20 years
  • Carl Gerds III, a former two-term Eastpointe city councilman who has practiced for about 30 years

The first- and second-place finishers in the Aug. 5 primary will square off for the district court seat in the November general election.
