The Wisconsin Judicial Commission investigates and prosecutes allegations of misconduct or disability on the part of Wisconsin judges and court commissioners. The Commission's purpose is to protect the integrity of the judicial process and to preserve public confidence in the courts. The Commission's mission is to hold Wisconsin judges and court commissioners accountable for violations of the Wisconsin Code of Judicial Conduct while maintaining the independence of the judiciary so necessary to the proper functioning of a democracy. The Commission also strives to strengthen the Wisconsin judiciary and the public's confidence in it by creating a greater awareness, on the part of both the judiciary and the public, of what constitutes proper and improper judicial conduct.
Information concerning the Commission's history, jurisdiction, procedures, and other matters can be found in the Commission's most recent annual report.
