Faulk Bill on Judicial Discipline Clears First Step

The Senate Government Operations Committee has signed off on a bill by Sen. Mike Faulk, R-Church Hill, to change the panel that disciplines judges for misconduct, but not as dramatically as a competing proposal by Sen. Mae Beavers, R-Mount Juliet.
Faulk’s proposal (SB2671) would continue to allow judicial groups to appoint most members of the panel, which would be renamed the Board of Judicial Conduct. The Beavers’ bill, which she began pushing last year over opposition from judges, would have the House and Senate speakers appointing a majority of members.
The Faulk bill now goes to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where Beavers is chairman and her bill is already pending.

    I do believe that judges do wrong and there for should be punished. My judge has ruined my life as well as my daughters due to listening to a family member who has a criminal record and is a drug addict that made me loose my child. I do believe that he was wrong because he had no evidence of anything. I am seeking help in this matter and would appreciate a response please at1-662-229-6966.
