Chapter 14 Legal process theory and judicial discipline in the United States
Restricted access

In this chapter, I explore the shortcomings of the judicial discipline model in the United States. Many of these shortcomings relate to disciplinary procedures used to punish judges, rather than the substantive standards, and they raise serious questions about whether the disciplinary process is working to stop and prevent misconduct and to protect public confidence in the judiciary. I also recommend some changes to the disciplinary process that incorporate the findings of legal process theory and, as a result, would better serve democratic values.
