URL: http://www.peer.state.ms.us/reports/rpt434.pdf

Description

The Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance (Commission) is responsible for investigating complaints about a judge's conduct; determining whether a judge has committed misconduct or is disabled; assisting judges who have committed minor ethical violations to change their behavior; imposing or recommending discipline, if appropriate, against a judge who violates ethical standards; and, when necessary, securing the removal of a judge from office. Despite the absence of comprehensive policies and procedures, the Commission's process for collecting and evaluating evidence provides an equitable and unbiased method of regulating judicial conduct.
