He had sex with a witness in his chambers, but judge can't be sued Published: July 28, 2014

Wade McCree Jr. lost his job, but he won’t lose his shirt, according to The Detroit Free Press.

The disgraced judge — who once texted a shirtless photo of himself to a female court bailiff — had an affair with a woman while overseeing her child custody case, had sex with her in his chambers and sexted her from the bench.

Be he can’t be sued for money damages over any of that because judges are immune from civil lawsuits — a well-established doctrine that has many in the legal profession demanding change, arguing the McCree case highlights a pervasive problem in the justice system: judges getting away with bad behavior on immunity grounds, The Free Press reports.
