With his docket already under scrutiny by a higher court, Novi District Judge Brian MacKenzie’s troubles may be deepening with the FBI now reviewing a case in which a drunken-driving suspect was Tasered by police and then later pressured to drop a related lawsuit, the Free Press has learned.
According to sources close to the case, the FBI has obtained a copy of an audio recording, made secretly in MacKenzie’s chambers four years ago, in which the judge can be heard telling defense attorney Timothy Corr to “give up the civil suit and I can get you something decent.”
Several legal experts, who either listened to the audio recording from MacKenzie’s chambers or reviewed a transcript of it, say what MacKenzie did was improper because judges are supposed to remain neutral.
