The Commission receives and reviews hundreds of complaints every year. Many of the complaints are about officials who fall outside of the Commission’s authority (e.g. complaints about hearing officers, magistrates, federal judges, etc). These complaints are returned to the sender.
Many more complaints are reviewed and dismissed by the Investigative Panel, because the allegations relate to legal decisions by a judge. The Commission, as in independent agency, is completely separate from the court process and cannot substitute its judgement for that of the judge. The Commission cannot review, reverse, or modify any legal decision by a judge.
If you feel that a judge has made a legal error, or has made the wrong decision in your case, then it is incumbent upon the you as the litigant to consult with competent legal counsel, or follow up through the appropriate legal channels (e.g. file an appeal, file a motion for rehearing, etc). The Commission cannot assist you with your case.
