SOUTHFIELD, Mich., July 29 (UPI) -- A lawyer whose $21 million sexual harassment suit against Chrysler was overturned by the Michigan Supreme Court plans to take on the court.

Geoffrey Fieger announced his intent to file with the Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission a complaint against four members of the high court,WDIV-TV, Detroit, said.

In a news conference at his Southfield, Mich., office, Fieger accused Supreme Court Justices Maura Corrigan, Clifford Taylor, Robert Young Jr. and Stephen Markman of taking away the rights of Michigan residents to sue. Fieger also accused the four justices of having a personal vendetta against him.

The justices declined comment.

The court overturned the large verdict won by Linda Gilbert against Chrysler because the justices said it was excessive.

Gilbert said her male co-workers at Chrysler's Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit called her cruel names and left sexually explicit cartoons and photos on and near her locker.
