Kilpatrick filed an appeal claiming that U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds had a personal and professional relationship with his defense lawyer and that she should have recused herself because of it. He made this argument after learning that Edmunds gave his attorney a wedding card, in which during a pretrial conference, Kilpatrick’s attorney said, ‘Thank you for the lovely card for my wedding. My wife and I truly loved it,’

A judge said just because the judge sent his attorney a card doesn’t mean there was bias.

All of Kwame Kilpatrick’s appeals have been denied, the U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear his case and Trump seems to have him on ignore with clemency.

Kwame Kilpatrick is currently serving a 28 year sentence.
