CHAMPAIGN -- Mayor Don Gerard is looking to change the dynamics of his court case with ex-girlfriend Laura Huth. His attorney has requested a new judge, because of what Judge Holly Clemons said about the mayor in another case.

Musician Jim Bean asked for a no-contact order against Gerard in April. Clemons dismissed it last week, but did say there was bad judgement on Gerard's part. She also said the mayor could have an anger management problem.

Huth and Gerard are trying to reach a settlement involving her business and money. The request for a new judge will be decided on next week.
