Family court judge accused of hiding abuse of grandson
Updated 8:43 a.m. ET May 16, 2019



The 11-year-old grandson of a Wayne County family court judge testified that his grandmother knew he was being beaten by his father and that she covered bruises on his face with makeup the night before he went to school.

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Tracy Green testified that she never saw bruises on her grandson and denied using makeup to cover them. She did acknowledge in court seeing a handprint on her grandson's face from her son and said she knew he used a belt to discipline his two oldest sons.

The case is unusual given her role as a family court judge who decides whether children should be removed or reunited with parents in similar situations.

"This was her own family," Wayne State Law professor Peter Henning said. "'How is she going to judge a situation in the future?'
an attorney might ask."

"It could call into question her judgment in a close case. This is a very challenging situation."

If she is found to have lied on the stand, the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission could take action, said Deborah Paruch, a law professor at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law.
