Mississippi Comm'n on Judicial Performance v. McGeeAnnotate this Case
The Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance (Commission) filed two formal complaints against Alcorn County Justice Judge Jimmy McGee alleging willful misconduct and conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice which brought the office into disrepute. The Commission and Judge submitted a joint motion for approval of a 120-day suspension, a public reprimand, costs and fees to the Supreme Court. After its independent review, the Supreme Court agreed that Judge McGee's conduct violated several canons of the Code of Judicial Conduct. The Court disagreed with the Commission's recommendation. The Court found the Judge's actions warranted a public reprimand, suspension from office for 270 days, and costs and fees.
