North Dakota: House plan to put Judicial Conduct Commission under military control set for hearing next week

I mentioned earlier this week the proposal in the North Dakota House to put the state’s Judicial Conduct Commission under the control of the state’s military, specifically the Adjutant General who serves as the commander of the state’s National Guard. The Adjutant General would select all members of the Commission (currently they are chosen by the District Court judges, the state bar’s board of governors, and the Governor).

HB 1313 has been set for a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on January 23 at 11:20 local time.
