With no trace of bedbugs, Detroit court back in session
Yesterday, 36th District Judge Cylenthia LaToye Miller cleared her courtroom after bedbugs were reportedly seen on a man sitting in the courtroom.
Today, the Associated Press reports the court is back in session:
Court officials say a pest control company was called in to investigate and found no evidence of the presence of bedbugs. A release called it a "false alarm." The man was accompanying a witness to a hearing before Miller. His daughter later said she knew there were bedbugs in her father's house. Miller said Thursday the evacuation was "for everybody's well-being." Her staff was sent home after Miller was unable to move her cases to another courtroom.
