NOW: Case against Lena Taylor moved to West Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE COUNTY (CBS 58) -- The case against State Senator Lena Taylor who is accused of using a racial slur against a bank teller in April will be moved from Milwaukee to West Milwaukee.

"What happens is, it's moved to another court system in which another judge would decide the case but the prosecution of it still stays the same, it's still the City of Milwaukee."

Taylor's attorney believes the three judges in Milwaukee Municipal Court rescued themselves. The City of Milwaukee cited her with disorderly conduct. Taylor went to a Wells Fargo bank on April 6 to see if a check from a tenant was still good.

Taylor's attorney says she was accused of using racist language during a disagreement about her signing the back of check.
