Suspended Judge Kahlilia Davis

Ex-Detroit 36th District Court Judge Kahlilia Davis was suspended last year from the bench for six years for "pervasive misconduct" that "besmirched the judiciary's reputation and prejudiced the administration of justice."

That being said, the Metro Times reports that she is "brazenly running to regain a seat" on the court. She's one of six candidates vying for two seats. The primary is Aug. 6.

The Michigan Department of State tells Metro Times that the Bureau of Elections (BOE) will soon determine whether Davis is eligible to run.

Steve Neavling of Metro Times writes that the law does not say she can't run, but it notes that she can't serve as a judge. That means, if allowed to continue, she could win but be barred from serving.
