This is all a power grab by Smolenski. She is not half the judge Servaas is.

It's time for Servaas to give it up. The GR township location is no farther for northern county residents to come to than for those living in Caledonia or Byron Center. And his own actions were illegal, even if Fisher acted stupidly in asking for the resignaion. Servaas failed to live in the region to which he was assigned. And sexual harassment is an evil that is too often overlooked.

Neither of these Judges are worth a poop. And it is so funny that their decisions are all in the name of God.

They BOTH need to go away! I hope Servaas is ousted and someone gets some dirt on Sarah and throws her out too.

I like Judge Servaas, but he isn't doing himself any favors by not cooperating with the move to a new building.

SMOLENSKI NEEDS TO GROW UP AND REALIZE THAT NOT EVERYBODY LIVES NEAR HER HOUSE. SERVAAS HAS SERVED US VERY WELL IN ROCKFORD. WHY NOT LEAVE THE COURT HERE WHERE IT BELONGS.
YES I BELIEVE SHE IS BEHIND THE WHOLE THING AND WE SHOULD GET HER OFF THE BENCH. THIS WOMEN IS A SELFSERVING , POWER ABUSER THAT NEEDS TO BE PUT IN HER PLACE.

Does anyone who comments on here even personally KNOW either of these judges?!?! I don't know Servaas, but I DO KNOW Smolenski. If you did KNOW her, you would know that she is the most fair, honest, and caring judge there ever was!

It's really sad to hear about this. But it shows that we are all human each with our dislikes and likes. No one is perfect. Steve needs to rethink his position. It will happen with or without his input. His ignorance is just hurting everybody involved including his people in Rockford. Maybe he should just step aside and retire. He fought the good fight now is the time for him to go into another field like missions.

"not pretty" is a mild understatement. can't quite decide which of those two judges is the uglier man. better to let SC rule than think of them 'trying' each other..

What a fu king joke.. Wasting tax payer dollar on this drama.. Sounds like Smolenski needs to go jump off a bridge. Why build this damn new expensive courtrooms when GR is a rock throw away.. People never seem to amaze me..

does anybody realize that the new location of the court will be outside it's jurisdiction..seems kind of hypocritical because one of the accusations against servaas was living outside of his area..when the future court is going to be outside of his area.

smolenski wants servaas off that bench so she can get one of her cronies on it whom she can manipulate she may not have called that commission but she damn well knows who did if you look at the big picture it is smolenski acting odd like she is obssessed with getting servaas off that bench like lawyers say she will keep throwing mud at the wall until some sticks

Those that live in Caledonia or Byron Center go to a different court. I believe its in Kentwood. Since metro Grand Rapids is located in the southern portion of the county. Any move south is a further drive. There is already a 63rd district court Div2 located on Kenmore (96& beltline area) not sure if this is the new one or not. But if not, why have 2 courts so close to each other.

They both are acting below their station. Both need to resign. What a shame that the folks elected act like this. Disgusting. Show some class and resign from Public Service-You BOTH are a disgrace.

WOW! This amazes me. Apparently none of you really know Servaas. He is a terrible judge. He lets guilty people go and punishes the innocent. Isn't that just a little bassackwards?
What a joke!
