Online Complaint Form
- Fill in the downloadable complaint form. Then mail or fax the complaint to the Executive Director of the CJC.
- Write a letter that includes all of the required information. Then mail or fax your letter to the Executive Director of the CJC.
When you file a complaint, please:
- Submit a complaint using the online form, the downloadable form, or by letter. The CJC does not accept complaints by telephone or email. If you have a disability that prevents you from submitting a written complaint, please contact the CJC's office to discuss how this office can best accommodate your needs.
- Submit print versions of a complaint by US Mail or by fax to the Executive Director of the CJC. Print versions include the downloadable form and letters.
- Use separate forms if you wish to file complaints against more than one judge
- Be as specific as possible in describing names, places, dates, docket numbers, and witnesses to the actions of the judge
- Make sure that you have filled out the complaint form completely and accurately. Use the "Specific Facts" section to explain, in your own words and with as much detail as possible, the circumstances that led to your complaint and the facts and evidence that you believe exist to support your complaint.
- List all the relevant events in chronological order
- Send copies, not originals, if you wish to attach court documents or any supporting documents to your complaint (materials you send to the CJC will not be returned to you even if your complaint is not investigated)
- Sign the complaint in the space provided. If you wish to remain anonymous, do not sign the form.
- Make a copy of the complaint for your records.
