DETROIT (AP) - A TV station says a new Detroit judge is getting paid but hasn’t worked, more than two months after her term began on Jan. 1.

Kahlilia Yvette Davis won election to Detroit’s 36th District Court. She tells WJBK (https://bit.ly/2m3Lecd ) that she had surgery and has an infection. She says she doesn’t want to put the courthouse at risk.

WJBK aired video of Davis going to Sam’s Club, a credit union and a gym.

Chief Judge Nancy Blount has asked Davis for more written evidence of her health problems. Blount says she hasn’t received a “satisfactory statement” from a doctor.

Davis says Blount is giving her a hard time because she defeated a relative in the election. Blount denies any retaliation.

District Court judges are paid about $140,000 a year.
