Thomas J. Elliott Re-Elected as Chair of the Judicial Conduct Board of Pennsylvania

March 17, 2021

On February 1, 2021, the Judicial Conduct Board of Pennsylvania (“Board”) unanimously re-elected Thomas J. Elliott, Esquire as its Chair.  The bi-partisan twelve-member Board is comprised of: three judges, three lawyers, and six non-lawyers, that reviews, investigates, and, when warranted, prosecutes complaints of alleged judicial misconduct.  If the Board finds probable cause to believe that a judge engaged in misconduct, it may file a complaint in the Court of Judicial Discipline that then decides if the Board has met its burden and the appropriate sanction for any proven misconduct.
