On Monday, November 28, 2022, the Judicial Council of the First Circuit denied the Petition for Review of an Order dismissing the complaint against an Unnamed District Judge in the First Circuit.

The case is entitled “In the matter of an Unnamed Judge” with case no. 01-20-90015.

Chief Judge Howard initially dismissed a Petition for Review of his Order dismissing an earlier complaint against a District Judge in the First Circuit. The former stated that pursuant to 28 U.S.C 352 (b)(1)(A)(iii) and 352 (b)(1)(a)(ii) and Rules of Judicial Conduct and Judicial-Disability, Rule 11(c)(1)(d) and 11(c)(1)(b), the complaint is baseless and not cognizable.

The Review Panel of the Judicial Council of the First Circuit has considered the Petition for Review and relevant materials. Consistent with Judge Howard’s dismissal of the said Petition, the Review Panel has concluded that the same should be denied for the same reasons stated in Judge Howard’s order of dismissal.

The Court reminded that the underlying complaint is Petitioner’s second baseless misconduct complaint. The court reminded that the filing of another frivolous or repetitive complaint may precipitate the issuance of an Order to Show Cause.
