Judge Conduct Comittee
The Judge Conduct Committee exists to decide when a judge’s conduct is a problem and how that misconduct should be resolved from the Judge Program’s perspective. It is comprised of Level 3 judges, selected by the Program Coordinators in a periodic application and selection process. Check out the Judge Conduct Committee blog for regular updates.
For the 2018 term, the Judge Conduct Committee includes:
How this Committee was selected:
The Committee was chosen from among several Level 3 judges who applied in December 2017. Applications were carefully evaluated by a committee of Program Coordinators and Level 3 judges on the applicants’ strength of investigative skill, availability and expected responsiveness, fair-mindedness, and other qualities related to the Judge Program’s values and the Committee’s needs. Final decisions were not easy, as there were many very highly qualified applicants.
The Committee refreshes each year, with a new application window and selection each December. Previous terms on the Committee do not guarantee future selection.
