Removal of Judges

Connecticut judges may be removed in one of three ways:
  • Judges may impeached by the house of representatives and removed by two thirds of the senate.

  • Judges may be removed by the governor on the address of two thirds of each house of the general assembly.

  • The judicial review council investigates complaints of judicial misconduct. If the investigation indicates that there is probable cause that the judge is guilty of misconduct, the council conducts a hearing and makes a recommendation to the supreme court. The supreme court may suspend or remove the judge.
