Diane Hathaway goes away

Diane Marie Hathaway, who came to the court in 2009 as what Justice Elizabeth Weaver described as “a breath of fresh air,” has been sentenced for her real estate fraud to a year and and a day in federal prison. You can read about it here from Crain’s Detroit Business. Or here from Brian Dickerson at the Freep. And you can watch the reporting that featured Elizabeth Weaver saying just that at WXYZ TV, Channel 7, Detroit. Ross Jones did the interview when we gathered at the Michigan Supreme Court Historical Society meeting May 2. Jones is the reporter who broke the story about Hathaway’s crime more than a year ago.
