MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- An immigrant is appealing a case she says the judge dismissed because he falsely believed she was in the country illegally.
Circuit Court Judge W. Dale Young dismissed Anna Calixto's request for an order of protection against her husband. Calixto says the judge told her she has no rights in this country and should go back to her home country of Nicaragua.
Young says he can't discuss what happened while the case is still under review.
Calixto's attorney says she has not filed a formal complaint against the judge, but he's not ruling out that possibility.
