Filing a Complaint - Overview

To file a complaint, you may download and fill out a complaint form or you may write a brief statement of your complaint. In addition, please review the confidentiality section of this website or download the confidentiality provisions document for additional information on what confidentiality rules apply to you, the complainant. Finally, mail or fax, DO NOT email, the Commission your complaint.

If you choose to write a letter, the letter should:

  • identify the judge

  • specify the conduct or action you believe was improper

  • identify by name and address any witnesses

  • include any documents or correspondence that may substantiate your allegations

Keep in mind that materials filed in the Commission's confidential records cannot be duplicated for you. If you need to maintain a record, keep a copy. Also, do not send records you wish to keep, such as original documents, without making prior arrangements for their loan and their safe delivery and return.

If the Commission's investigators require more information, you will be contacted.

[If you have a disability which requires assistance in filing a complaint or you would like this form in an alternate format, such as Braille, large print or audio tape, contact this office at (360) 753-4585 voice or TDD. We will take reasonable steps to accommodate your needs.]
