The complainant alleged that a judge punished him for following the Rules of Civil Procedure and that, in doing so, aided the defendants. The judge allegedly held racist beliefs which he used to dismiss the complainant’s motion. A month later, another judge dismissed the same motion. In a reasoned decision, he ruled that the evidence did not support the order being requested. However, the complainant felt that the judge was racist, harassed him through his rulings, was biased, and was untrustworthy in his decision.

The complainant was advised that the Council has no authority to review a judicial decision for the purpose of determining its correctness, nor can the Council change or rescind a judgment. Where a litigant disagrees with a finding or a decision, the appropriate recourse lies with the appeal level. As the complaint did not involve judicial conduct, the matter was closed.
