Michigan judge mistakenly gets angry calls over Jim Acosta press badge ruling

BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan judge's office fielded angry phone calls after callers mistook him for a federal judge who restored CNN reporter Jim Acosta's access to the White House.

Bay County District Court Judge Timothy J. Kelly was out of the office Nov. 16 when U.S. District Court Judge Timothy J. Kelly in the District of Columbia granted Acosta a two-week injunction to return to work.

The White House had initially revoked Acosta's credentials after he and Trump tangled verbally during a Nov. 7 press conference.

MLive.com reports that judge Kelly's Bay City, Michigan, office received a half-dozen phone calls complaining about the other Timothy J. Kelly's ruling.

Judge Timothy J. Kelly of Bay County says he thinks the callers "would at least do your homework" before calling someone to complain.
