CINCINNATI (AP) - A suspended juvenile court judge convicted of a felony and facing another trial has filed a lawsuit saying her rights have been violated.

Judge Tracie Hunter alleges in a lawsuit she filed herself this week in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati that nearly two dozen officials, judges, court personnel and attorneys conspired to deprive her of constitutional rights and treated her differently as an African-American judge.

Her lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages to be determined by a jury.

Lawsuit defendant Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters (DEE’-turs) says anyone who doesn’t believe Hunter “needs professional help” should read the lawsuit.

She was sentenced to six months for unlawful interest in a public contract involving her brother. The jury hung on eight other counts she’ll be re-tried on Sept. 8.
