Removal of Judges

Vermont judges may be removed in one of two ways: 

  • Vermont judges may be impeached by a two-thirds vote of the house of representatives and convicted by a two-thirds vote of the senate.
  • The judicial conduct board investigates complaints of judicial misconduct or disability and recommends any necessary action to the supreme court. Possible disciplinary actions include public reprimand of the judge, suspension for a part or the remainder of the judge's term of office, or retirement of the judge if physically or mentally disabled.
