Description: The public information office of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has announced that a judicial misconduct complaint against Chief Judge Richard Cebull of the U.S. District Court for Montana “is currently under review.  The complaint was self-initiated by Judge Cebull and pertains to an inappropriate email message Judge Cebull recently sent to several people,” which the judge has admitted contained racists statements about President Obama.  The complaint has brought unusual attention to the little-known complaint process applicable to federal judges under the Judicial Conduct and Disability Act of 1980.  To help participants understand this developing news story, this program will describe the process in general, discuss recent public proceedings, and consider how the process may play out for Judge Cebull.
