Coronavirus Pandemic Protocols


As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Commission on Judicial Conduct adopted social distancing measures as recommended by public health authorities. For example, staff worked from home, and proceedings have been conducted virtually. Activities traditionally performed in person – such as meetings, witness interviews, depositions and hearings – have been transacted via video.

As both the pandemic and public health restrictions have eased, the Commission has begun phasing in a return to in-office operations. However, for the continued health and safety of its staff and those with whom we interact, visitors to the agency’s offices will not be accommodated, and much of the agency’s business will continue to be conducted by virtual/electronic means of communication.

We urge that complaints be submitted through our online complaint form, and that all other communications be by email to or fax to (518) 299-1757. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
