Nevada State Judicial Department
Required actions upon receipt of complaint; letter of caution.
The Commission shall, in accordance with its procedural rules, examine each complaint that it receives to determine whether the complaint alleges objectively verifiable evidence from which a reasonable inference could be drawn that a judge committed misconduct or is incapacitated.
If the Commission determines that a complaint does not contain such allegations, the Commission shall dismiss the complaint with or without a letter of caution. A letter of caution is not a form of discipline. The Commission may consider a letter of caution when deciding the appropriate action to be taken on a subsequent complaint against a judge unless the letter of caution is not relevant to the misconduct alleged in the subsequent complaint.
If the Commission determines that a complaint does contain such allegations, the Commission shall authorize further investigation.
