Introduced by Assembly Member Muratsuchi

February 19, 2021

An act to amend Section 68725 of the Government Code, relating to courts.


AB 1251, as introduced, Muratsuchi. Commission on Judicial Performance.
The California Constitution establishes the Commission on Judicial Performance and authorizes the commission to disqualify, suspend, retire, or censure a judge for specified acts of misconduct or for disability that seriously interferes with the performance of the judge’s duties or that is, or is likely to become, permanent. The California Constitution requires the commission to make rules for the investigation of judges and authorizes the commission to provide for the confidentiality of complaints to, and investigations by, the commission. Existing statutory law also governs procedures for the conduct of these investigations. Existing law requires state and local departments and their employees to cooperate with the commission in an investigation conducted by the commission.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to this provision.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


 Section 68725 of the Government Code is amended to read:

 State and local public bodies and departments, officers and employees thereof, and officials and attaches of the courts of this State shall co-operate cooperate with and give provide reasonable assistance and information to the commission and any authorized representative thereof, in connection with any investigations or proceedings within the jurisdiction of the commission.
