LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court has appointed a new administrator for a commission that investigates and prosecutes allegations of attorney misconduct.

Alan M. Gershel starts Oct. 13 as administrator for the court’s Attorney Grievance Commission. He is a 1978 graduate of University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and most recently taught at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing.

Before that he was a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit for nearly 30 years.

The Supreme Court also appoints the commission’s nine volunteer members and deputy administrator.

Gershel will manage a legal staff of 13 attorneys and a support staff of 15, including three investigators.

The commission receives more than 3,300 requests a year for investigation. About 9 percent result in formal charges.
