ACJC Files on Indicted Judge Not Confidential – State v. Clark

Following the Supreme Court’s decision on Wednesday in R.M. v. Supreme Court (holding that the confidentiality provisions of Rule 1:20-9 are unconstitutional), the Appellate Division ruled this morning that once an indictment has been returned against a judge who is under investigation by the Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct (ACJC), the confidentiality of that investigation under Rule 2:15-20 is no longer necessary nor required. Moreover, the information learned during the ACJC investigation may be utilized as part of the prosecution of the indictment by the State.
