Recent appointments of three judges to the 36th District Court in Detroit involved some political prominent names.

Roberta Archer, an assistant Wayne County prosecutor and wife of Dennis Archer Jr., replaced her mother-in-law, Trudy DunCombe Archer, who retired.

Gov. Jennifer Granholm promoted Deborah Ross Adams, wife of Deputy Mayor Anthony Adams, from 36th District Court to Wayne County Circuit Court to replace retiring William Leo Cahalan.

Ruth Carter, former corporation counsel for the city of Detroit and one-time Wayne County prosecutor, replaced Adams.

Cylenthia LaToye Miller, former director of the city of Detroit’s Employment & Training Department and previously assistant general counsel to Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, was appointed to the vacancy created by the death of Ted Wallace.

The terms all expire Jan. 1, requiring the appointees to face election in November. District Court judges are paid $138,272 per year.
