* Complaint disposition does not always reflect Commission action. Due to multiple complaints against the same judicial officer, a single disposition may dispose of several cases. In addition, due to diverse allegations or more than one judge within the same complaint, complaints may be disposed for more than one reason. In 1995, three cases were disposed with the reprimand of a single judicial officer.
 
** Inquiries are recorded when individuals contact the Commission about filing a complaint.
