Arkansas Abusive Judges

Abusive Judges

The judiciary cannot exist without the trust and confidence of the people. The confidence is maintained when judges endeavor to follow the Code of Judicial Conduct while they remain faithful to the law.

RULE 1.1 Compliance with the Law.

A Judge shall comply with the law, including the Arkansas Code of Judicial Conduct.

RULE 1.2 Promoting Confidence in the Judiciary.

A JUDGE SHALL UPHOLD AND PROMOTE THE INDEPENDENCE, INTEGRITY, AND IMPARTIALITY OF THE JUDICIARY, AND SHALL AVOID IMPROPRIETY AND THE APPEARANCE OF IMPROPRIETY.

Arkansas judges may be removed in one of three ways:
  • The judicial discipline and disability commission, which is responsible for enforcing the Arkansas Code of Judicial Conduct, has the authority to investigate, as well as to initiate, complaints concerning misconduct of judges. After notice and hearing, the commission may, by majority vote of the membership, recommend to the supreme court that a judge be suspended or removed, and the supreme court sitting en banc may take such action.
  • Judges may be impeached by the house of representatives and convicted by two thirds of the senate.
  • The governor may remove judges for good cause upon the joint address of two thirds of the members of both houses of the general assembly.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can the Judicial Discipline & Disability Commission do?

The Commission investigates and may take
disciplinary action or, in the most serious
cases, recommend to the Arkansas Supreme
Court that it impose discipline upon a judge
whose actions are found to a violation of the
Code of Judicial Conduct.
In order of increasing severity, the
Commission may make an informal
adjustment (such as direct professional
counseling or assistance for the judge), issue
a public admonishment, reprimand or censure
the judge. A recommendation will be made to
the Arkansas Supreme Court if the
Commission finds more stronger action is
needed.
The Court may impose suspension, removal
or involuntarily retirement.

How will the Commission handle my complaint?

Each complaint is carefully reviewed by the Commission staff
and acted on by the Commission. Complaints that include
allegations of misconduct within the Commission’s
jurisdiction will be investigated by the staff and those findings
presented to the Commission. The Commission may dismiss
the complaint or conduct a preliminary investigation. A
preliminary investigation may lead to a formal hearing.
Each complainant is informed by letter whether a complaint
states a basis for further consideration. The complainant will
be notified of the disposition if the Commission conducts an
investigation or proceeding.

Who may file a complaint with the Commission on judicial performance?

Any individual or group may file a complaint.
The Commission may receive complaints from courtroom
litigants, attorneys, jurors, court observers, court personnel,
prisoners, court administrators, other judges or anyone who
has knowledge of possible judicial misconduct or
wrongdoing.

How do I file a complaint?

Complaints may be submitted by completing a Commission
complaint form describing the judge’s misconduct. You may
write or call the Commission office to request a form,
download the form or file electronically at https://abusivejudges.com/judicial-discipline/. You may attach copies (do
not send originals) of court documents to support your
allegations against the judge.
