Brief History of the Judicial Disciplinary Process in PA
The Creation of the Two-Tier System of Judicial Discipline in Pennsylvania
In 1993, the citizens of the Commonwealth approved the legislature's adoption of an Amendment to our Constitution. The Amendment, adopted on May 18 of that year, and effective August 11, abolished the Judicial Inquiry and Review Board and created the Judicial Conduct Board, which is responsible for the investigation and prosecution of charges of judicial misconduct, and the Court of Judicial Discipline, which performs the adjudicatory function.
