has authority to investigate complaints involving the following:

Permanent disabilities that interfere with judicial duties.
A violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct.
that brings the judiciary into disrepute.
The Commission's primary concern
is judicial behavior, not judicial decision-making. Only a higher court can
overturn a judge's decision or ruling. The Commission is not a court and cannot
change a judge's decision (including child custody orders), intervene in a
pending case, remove a judge from a case, or award damages or other monetary
relief to litigants.
Complaints that allege misconduct
solely on the basis of a judge's decisions will be dismissed without
investigation. Neither the Commission nor its staff can provide legal
assistance or advice.
