Removal of Judges

Minnesota judges may be removed one of two ways:
  • After a public hearing and on the recommendation of the board on judicial standards, the supreme court may censure, retire, or remove a judge.
  • Judges may be impeached by a majority vote of the house of representatives and convicted by a two-thirds vote of the senate.
  • Judges are subject to recall election.
