State commission logs 1,785 judicial complaints

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct reports processing 1,785 new complaints against state and local judges last year and authorizing 182 full investigations.

The commission's 2012 public decisions in 2012 include three admonitions, nine censures, three removals from office and five public stipulations where judges resigned and agreed to never again hold judicial office.

Commission Administrator Robert Tembeckjian says there were fewer complaints and initial inquiries last year but more investigations and disciplines than the year before.

Measured against the last five years, he says statistically it was about average.
