Increase in Judicial Complaints Attributed to Judges

I have posted a couple of times about Georgia judges resigning in significant numbers.  See here.

GPB news reported an interesting angle.

“Judge John D. Allen, chair of the state Judicial Qualifications Commission, says the number of complaints against judges has risen dramatically compared to last year.”
“’We have gotten over close to 600 complaints this fiscal year on judges. About a 35 to 40 percent increase if I’m not mistaken.’ He says the largest increase comes from judges reporting problems with others on the bench.”

Story here.

Obviously, the system cannot work and the public cannot be protected, if judges do not report other judges.
