§

3. Judicial officers; administrative and disciplinary control

The supreme

court shall have administrative and disciplinary control of all judicial

officers of the state, in addition to and not inconsistent with the

constitutional powers of the general assembly in those matters. It shall adopt

and promulgate a code of judicial ethics which shall be binding on those

officers for disciplinary purposes. It may issue rules and regulations

providing for the exercise of disciplinary control, including but not limited

to providing for the manner of making and disposing of complaints of violations

of judicial ethics, a committee of the judiciary for determining issues raised

by complaints, and imposing sanctions, including when appropriate suspension

from judicial duties for the balance of the term of the judicial officer

charged. (1965, No. 194, § 14.)
