In a family matters case, the complainant had previously submitted a multitude of complaints, all of which were dismissed by the Council. During the most recent family court proceeding, the judge was accused of basing his decision on stereotypes, of being partial and retributive towards the complainant. The complainant attached what he believed to be examples of the alleged unethical conduct of the judge to support his complaint.

From the Council’s view, the support provided was inadequate based on the fact that it was about the outcome of the trial rather than the judicial conduct. It was clear from the correspondence that the complainant was upset with the judge for allocating more to the wife in the divorce and custody of their children.

The complainant was advised that the judge makes a decision based on the best interest of the child, and will remain unbiased when making a decision, particularly when it involves the separation of a family. The complainant was then advised that he holds the right to appeal the case with the appropriate court; however, the Council will not pursue any additional consideration. The matter was closed.
