From The Grand Rapids Press:
The state Attorney Grievance Commission has ruled that Judicial Tenure Commission Executive Director Paul Fischer does not have to face a disciplinary panel for his investigation of Kent County District Judge Steven Servaas.
In a terse pronouncement Nov. 17, the grievance commission reviewing a complaint against Fischer ruled “no further action is warranted.” As required in such cases, it gave no indication why.
More than a dozen prominent local lawyers, including former presidents of the Grand Rapids Bar Association, filed a grievance seeking sanctions against Fischer in July 2008. The attorneys alleged Fischer tried to extort Servaas’ resignation.
The grievance commission evidently did not agree.
