HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A judge seeking to get around Michigan’s age limit by challenging another judge has lost an election in Livingston County.

But Carol Sue Reader won’t be out of a job. She’ll still remain on the county’s District Court through 2018.

Reader challenged fellow Judge L. Suzanne Geddis in the election Tuesday. Geddis was elected to another six-year term by a comfortable margin.

Under the Michigan Constitution, judicial candidates can’t run if they’re 70 or older. That restriction disqualifies Reader in 2018, so she tried to get Geddis’ seat before hitting the age limit.

Geddis said it all seemed “greedy.” The judges appeared together during the final weeks of the campaign season, sparring over temperament and other issues.
