Complaints about Judges, Magistrates, and other judicial officers can be made to the Judicial Conduct Commissioner.
The Commissioner is independent from both Government and the Judiciary and is appointed under the Judicial Conduct Commissioner Act 2015 (SA) [s 7].
Complaints must be about the conduct of a judicial officer, and not merely about being unhappy with a decision that they made [Judicial Conduct Commissioner Act 2015 (SA) s 12(2)].
Complaints must be in writing and must contain details about who is complained about, who is the person complaining and the matter that the complaint relates to [s12(5)].
