DETROIT (AP) - A judge has dismissed a lawsuit over the firing of the longtime administrator of a state agency that investigates lawyers suspected of misconduct.

Robert Agacinski claimed his dismissal in 2014 by the Michigan Supreme Court was in retaliation for reporting computer-use violations by employees. In response, the court said he was ousted after 14 years because of poor management.

The court acted after Agacinski’s skills were panned by a lawyer hired to investigate what was happening inside the Attorney Grievance Commission.

In a May 16 decision, Judge Mark Boonstra of the Michigan Court of Claims ruled in favor of the Supreme Court and dismissed the lawsuit. A separate but related lawsuit still is pending in Wayne County court.
