About the Circuit Court Clerk Conduct Commission

The purpose of the Circuit Court Clerk Conduct Commission is to support circuit court clerks in maintaining high standards of integrity, impartiality and independence in order to promote public confidence in the judicial system. Circuit court clerks perform duties prescribed by the Kentucky Constitution, statutes, rules and administrative procedures that are integral to Kentucky Court of Justice operations. They have a prominent role at the front counter of the statewide judicial system. To that end, this Commission will assist the chief justice of Kentucky and the Supreme Court of Kentucky by receiving and investigating complaints involving circuit court clerks and making recommendations to the chief justice for action.

The Supreme Court created the Circuit Court Clerk Conduct Commission after consulting with the full membership of the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks and adopting an administrative procedure, which became effective Jan. 1, 2013.
