In the Matter of the Amendment of the Supreme Court Rules: SCR Chapter 60 Code of Judicial Conduct, Appendix Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee

 

 

ORDER

No. 00-14

 

The court, on its own motion, has determined it advisable to amend the Rules of the Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee in respect to its circuit judge membership to enlarge the number of judges eligible for appointment to the committee by including reserve judges who serve regularly in the circuit court.

IT IS ORDERED that, effective the date of this order, A. (1) of the Rules of the Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee is amended to read:

(1)         Membership. A judicial conduct advisory committee consisting of nine members appointed by the supreme court is created. Six members of the committee shall be selected from the judiciary of this state, one member shall be selected from the court commissioners serving the circuit court, one member shall be selected from attorneys licensed to practice law in this state, and one member shall be selected from the public. One judge member shall be a chief judge of a judicial administrative district, one judge member shall be a judge of the court of appeals, one judge member shall be a circuit judge or a reserve judge who serves regularly on an urban area court, one judge member shall be a circuit judge or a reserve judge who serves regularly on a rural area court, one judge member shall be a municipal judge, and one judge member shall be a reserve judge. Members shall serve for a term of three years and shall continue to serve until a successor is appointed, except that, to achieve staggered terms, three of the members first appointed, shall serve for one year, three members for two years, and three members for three years. A member may serve not more than two successive three-year terms. Appointments to fill a vacancy shall be for the balance of the term vacated. Members of the committee shall serve without compensation but shall be reimbursed for expenses actually and necessarily incurred in the performance of their duties.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that notice of this amendment of the Supreme Court Rules be given by a single publication of a copy of this order in the official state newspaper and in an official publication of the State Bar of Wisconsin.

Dated at Madison, Wisconsin, this 25th day of September, 2000.
