The Judicial Standards Commission is an independent, constitutionally created Commission. The Code of Judicial Conduct adopted by the New Mexico Supreme Court provides standards of ethics and judicial conduct for State court judges. You may complain about a judge’s conduct by submitting a verified notarized form in which the facts of the complaints are set forth. You may attach to your complaint copies of any documents that might add to the understanding of your concern. No complaint will be disregarded, however, some complaints are dismissed after a preliminary review because they do not involve professional misconduct or disability. You should not expect to receive any money damages, reimbursement of loss, or legal advice.
