Pleadings in Public Cases

Public cases are matters in which the Disciplinary Counsel has filed formal charges against a judge. Formal charges are filed after the Disciplinary Counsel has completed a full investigation of the complaint, and the Board of Judicial Conduct's Investigative Panel has reviewed and approved the Disciplinary Counsel’s recommendation to file formal charges.

Once formal charges are filed against a judge, the matter becomes open to the public. The court filings for formal charges against judges are below.
