12:235-10.3 Minor discipline
Oral or written private reprimands shall constitute minor discipline. A judge shall receive formal notification of the charges and the facts upon which the charges are based. The judge shall be afforded an opportunity to respond either in writing or orally to the Director or Supervisory Judge presenting the charges. No formal hearing will be held and the decision of the Director or Supervisory Judge shall be final. A judge may request of the Director that records of minor discipline and all related documents be expunged after one year provided no subsequent reprimands have been issued.
