Complaint Process

Anyone can file a complaint against a judge, and an official complaint form can be obtained from the Commission's office or downloaded here. A signed and sworn letter will be treated as a complaint if it contains the information required on the official form. There is no charge for filing a complaint. 

A complaint consists of a statement of facts describing the judge's conduct and listing the names of witnesses who can verify the facts. The complainant is not required to provide court files, but may attach copies of documents that might help the Commission understand the complaint. 

Complaints must be mailed or delivered to the Commission's office in a sealed envelope. Please do not place or indicate the judge's name on the outside of the envelope. All complaints are numbered and screened in the order in which they are received. The Commission's investigation may take several months, depending on the complexity of the matter and the Commission's caseload.  

The complainant and the judge will be notified by mail of the Commission's decision at the conclusion of the investigation.
