The Michigan Supreme Court has fired the head of the agency that pursues lawyers suspected of misconduct.
Robert Agacinski is out as administrator at the Attorney Grievance Commission.
In a statement Friday, the Supreme Court says it wants to ``improve operations'' at the Detroit-based commission and ``speed the resolution of pending cases.'' The court didn't elaborate on the problems. 
Messages seeking comment were left for Agacinski. He was administrator since 2000. He's been a lawyer for 42 years.
Commission Chairwoman Barbara Smith declined to comment on the court's action, although she says she doesn't believe investigations move too slowly.
