The Commission resolves some Requests for Investigation without a public proceeding, pursuant to MCR 9.223(A)(2) – (A)(4). In those instances, the Commission informs the respondent of violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct, sometimes including recommendations for corrective action. The confidentiality provisions in the Michigan Court Rules do not permit the Commission to disclose the names of judicial officers in those cases.
Click on each year listed below to access summaries of some of the Commission’s findings in those cases in which it took confidential corrective action in the respective years. The staff is working to add summaries from the year 2000 to the present. Because these are private dispositions that did not proceed to a hearing, they are not precedent. The numbers used to identify the summaries for each year are randomly assigned and do not reflect case file numbers used internally by the Commission.
