6th Cir. Judge James Ryan retiring in Sept.

DETROIT (AP) — Federal appeals court Judge James L. Ryan of Michigan says he’s stepping down in September.

Ryan has been on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati since January 1986. He was nominated by President Ronald Reagan after 10 years on the Michigan Supreme Court and nine years as a Wayne County judge.

In a statement Wednesday, Ryan says he still loves the work but wants to do other things. Off the bench, he has taught at law schools and given lectures in more than 30 states.

The appeals court hears cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.

  1. Good riddance, crook. I fought with the Alliance for Justice to keep your son off the District Court bench and I’m going to fight to keep your daughter off the Oakland County Probate bench. The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree.
