Program Description:  

Recusing and Reporting Judges: The Legal, Ethical and Practical Dimensions

Determining whether a particular judge is disqualified to preside over a specific case is a lawyer’s responsibility that cannot be disregarded.  What are the statutory, ethical and constitutional grounds for disqualifying a judge?  How should an attorney investigate whether a particular judge may be disqualified in counsel’s case?  What are the various mechanisms for moving to disqualify a judge?  What are the ethical obligations of an attorney faced with a judicial disqualification issue?  What type of judicial conduct should be reported to the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission?  Who should report a judge’s misconduct?  When should a judge’s conduct be reported to the Commission?  What ethical obligation does a lawyer have to report a judge’s conduct to the Commission?  What are the psychological barriers to recusing or reporting a judge?  All of these questions and more will be answered in this program.

Speakers include: J. Vincent Aprile, II, Lynch, Cox, Gilman & Goodman, Hon. David P. Bowles, Jefferson County District Court and a representative from KY Judicial Conduct Commission.
