Morrison Mahoney partner Grace Garcia from the Boston office was recently appointed to the Massachusetts Commission of Judicial Conduct through an Order of Appointment by Chief Justice Jeffrey Locke. The membership of the Commission consists of nine people, each appointed for a six-year term: three judges appointed by the Supreme Judicial Court, three lawyers appointed by the Chief Justice of the Trial Court, and three non-lawyers appointed by the Governor. The Commission is the designated forum in Massachusetts for all complaints alleging misconduct by a judge or alleging mental or physical disability affecting a judge’s performance. The legislature created the Massachusetts Commission on Judicial Conduct in 1978 and entrusted it with the important mission of enforcing standards of judicial conduct for Massachusetts state judges, promoting public confidence in the judiciary, and preserving the integrity of the judicial process. Grace’s appointment to this incredibly distinguished and important commission is a well-earned honor and is representative of the high regard to which Grace is held amongst the highest levels of the judiciary.
