DETROIT, MI- MARCH 24, 2020-

The Judicial Tenure Commission's office is temporarily closed by Governor Whitmer's March 23 order requiring shelter-in-place due to the COVID-19 virus. The office will be closed through Friday, April 10, and perhaps longer if the shelter-in-place order is extended.

During the closure the Commission staff will not be able to mail Request for Investigation forms.

 The forms can be downloaded from the Commission's website. Please note, though, that they must be notarized for the Commission to accept them. Having a Request for Investigation notarized is not an essential activity during the shelter-in-place. Further, staff cannot receive a Request for Investigation during the shelter-in-place. For these reasons, the Commission encourages everyone not to have notarized, or  submit, Requests for Investigation to the Commission until after the shelter-in-place order is lifted. Any delay this causes in the Commission receiving your complaint will not impact the Commission’s investigation.

The Commission staff is monitoring email remotely and will reply, although responses may be delayed.

The Commission encourages everyone to follow Governor Whitmer’s directives and to take all good precautions to remain healthy.
