What We Do


The Commission is an independent agency created by the New York Constitution to investigate complaints against New York judges.

The Commission enforces the Rules Governing Judicial Conduct, which require judges to observe high standards of conduct to promote public confidence in the judiciary, while maintaining essential judicial independence.

Where appropriate, a judge found to have engaged in unethical behavior may be admonished, censured or removed from office. A disciplined judge may request review in the Court of Appeals, New York's highest court.
