Judges limit where prosecutor can go in Mich.courthouse

Associated Press

Coldwater – A county prosecutor in southern Michigan has been barred from talking to certain women in the courthouse unless a male employee or a sheriff’s deputy is present.

It’s one of many conditions placed on Ralph Kimble by Branch County judges. He’s been accused of sexual harassment but firmly denies the allegations. There’s also a recall campaign against him.

A Feb. 22 order obtained by WWMT-TV says Kimble is barred from the second floor of the courthouse except for courtrooms or judges’ offices. He can’t speak alone to a female employee of the judiciary.

Kimble tells radio station WTVB that it’s “more dirty politics” by judges. He says he’s “not their team player.”
