Gag order issued in Michael George case


More legal maneuvers in the case of Michael George, whose conviction in the killing of his wife has been sent back for a new trial: Although judge James Biernat Sr. did not remove the Macomb County Prosecutor’s office from the case, he has issued a gag order:

But Biernat instead imposed a gag order prohibiting attorneys from speaking to the media about the case, because he said he’s concerned about a tainted jury in an upcoming trial.


“The defense has presented a colorful argument,” Biernat said. “However, the court finds that given the present status (of the case) with the Court of Appeals, it would be inappropriate.”
