Judicial Conduct & Disability

Codes of Conduct and related sources of authority provide standards of behavior for judges and others in the federal court family. The Judicial Conduct and Disability Act allows complaints alleging that a federal judge has engaged in “conduct prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the business of the courts” or has become, by reason of a temporary or permanent condition, “unable to discharge the duties” of the judicial office.

This Judicial Complaint Form may be used to file a Complaint of Judicial Misconduct or Disability to the Judicial Council of the 8th Circuit Court.
