Members of the public may file a complaint regarding judicial misconduct or incapacity by filling in and submitting a complaint form, which can be accessed below.

Once a complaint is submitted, it is forwarded to the Commission’s Director for initial screening and review. If, after review, the Director determines that the information within the complaint raises allegations that would constitute judicial misconduct or incapacity if true, the Director will conduct a Preliminary Investigation. The Director and Staff will periodically update complainants regarding the status of their complaints, however, investigating allegations of judicial misconduct or incapacity can oftentimes take several weeks or months to complete.

To review the rules governing the Commission’s processes from inception of a complaint though Preliminary Investigation and, if appropriate, Full Investigation, please see the Commission’s Rules.
