Public Notice - Code of Judicial Conduct

Oct 22, 2013

Tribal Council is considering adopting the Code of Judicial Conduct. The Code sets the standards of conduct binding on the judges of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Court so that the integrity and independence of the judiciary is preserved.

The Code is enforced by the Judicial Oversight Commission of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe by appropriate disciplinary measures, if determined necessary by them, while safeguarding the right of judges to decide cases independently and promoting public confidence in the integrity and honor of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Court system.

Copies of the Proposed Code can be obtained at the Community Building, the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe Website or Public Information.

Tribal Council is seeking Public Comment in which this will end on November 16, 2013. Comments for review may be submitted in writing to the Legal Department Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. In which they will note the date the comment was received and then forwarded accordingly. Public comment will also be taken verbally at three proposed public meeting to be scheduled on Wednesday, October 23 and November 6, at 5:00 p.m. in the Lobby of the Tribe; and Saturday November 2 at the Tribal Monthly Meeting and in the Lobby of the Tribe.
