If your complaint don’t include the above, it will be dismissed as frivolous.
illogical, fantastic or incoherent;
negated by common knowledge which the commissioner takes official notice of;
brought by a charging party acting in bad faith; or (e.g. don’t like the person)
substantially the same as a previous charge in which no probable cause was found and involves the same charging party but a different respondent.
Valid complaint definitions are;
1. Malfeasance “Malfeasance” means the willful commission of an unlawful or wrongful act in the performance of a public official’s duties which is outside the scope of the authority of the public official and which infringes on the rights of any person or entity. (Editing evidence, fabricating evidence
2. Nonfeasance “Nonfeasance” means the willful failure to perform a specific act which is a required part of the duties of the public official. In Maine, this is one of the most pervasive misdeeds by the District Attorney’s it’s the Brady violation, or the failure to turn over favorable evidence to the defendant. It’s the most common form of misconduct cited by courts in overturning convictions. There’s very little to hold prosecutors to the Brady obligation except filing valid complaints against them.
3. Misfeasance “Misfeasance” means the negligent performance of the duties of a public official or the negligent failure to perform a specific act which is a required part of the duties of the public official. (e.g. Withhold evidence that might help the defense.) For More Information Visit, http://despicablemaine.org/file-a-complaint/
Judge Misconduct – You should consider a Judge “Bad” if they show a pattern of behaving or ruling in a manner that is:
Preventing or hindering you from receiving full, fair, impartial hearings or the full, fair, impartial administration of justice or
You have seen evidence which would lead a reasonable person to believe they could be prevented or hindered from receiving full, fair, impartial hearings or the full, fair, impartial administration of justice.
The criteria used in deciding if a judge is bad is NOT how they handle a high profile case or people of influence, but how they handle the poor, prosecutorial misconduct and the unrepresented. Regardless of how bad a Judge is, they will undoubtedly make SOME correct decisions. We consider a Judge bad if they do not FAITHFULLY and CONSISTENTLY adhere to their oath of office and aggressively pursue justice for ALL. Anything less is unacceptable and is the definition of a bad judge.
Bad Judges are everywhere in Maine. No practicing lawyer is willing or able to expose Bad Judges publicly, for they are at great risk when they must later appear again before the exposed Bad Judge.
Get this. Judges have given themselves judicial immunity for their judicial functions. Judicial immunity does not exist for judges who engage in criminal activity, for judges who connive with, aid and abet the criminal activity of another judge, or to a judge for damages sustained by a person who has been harmed by the judge’s connivance with, aiding and abeting, another judge’s criminal activity. Any judge who does not comply with his oath to the Constitution of the United States wars against the Constitution and engages in acts in violation of the Supreme Law of the Land.
