HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A judge seeking to get around an age limit is challenging another judge for a seat on the Livingston County District Court.

Carol Sue Reader has two years left in her term. But she’ll be 71 by then and won’t be eligible to run for re-election, under the Michigan Constitution.

So Reader is challenging fellow District Court Judge L. Suzanne Geddis in the Nov. 8 election. If Reader wins, she’ll get a fresh six-year term.

Geddis says Reader really has nothing to lose because Reader will remain a judge even if she loses. But if Geddis loses, her job is over. Geddis says it seems “greedy.”

The judges have appeared together during the final weeks of the campaign season, sparring over temperament and other issues.
