James Harvey, a former Saginaw mayor, congressman and federal judge, has died. He was 97 years old.

The U.S. District Court in Detroit says Harvey died Saturday in Naples, Florida. His first name was Russell, but he was known as James.

Harvey was a federal judge in eastern Michigan from 1974 to 1992. He handled many high-profile cases, including the sentencing of reputed mob boss Anthony Giacalone in 1979. During his first year on the bench, Harvey ruled in favor of two 16-year-old girls who had been barred from playing in a state softball championship because they weren't 17. He noted that the boys had no similar age limit.

Harvey, a Republican, was elected to the U.S. House in 1960 and served there until becoming a judge.
