    We already have JPEC evaluations and the Judicial Conduct Commission for judicial officers, why do we need more bureaucracy? Next we’ll need commissions to oversee other commissions and committees. If there is a need to field complaints about the court administrator then narrow the committee to that inquiry. If the Judicial Conduct Commission is inadequate, then that process needs to be reformed.

    This seems an appropriate restatement of the roles of the Court and the Judicial Council, and institutionalization of means for noting and resolving situations where one might trench on an other’s prerogative. This can be an issue that at times lurks unseen.
