The Commission on Judicial Disabilities, origi-
nally created by Chapter 773, Acts of 1965, had
its powers redefined by Chapter 506, Acts of
1967. The Act of 1965 was ratified on Novem-
ber 8, 1966, as an amendment to the Constitu-
tion (Const. 1867, Art. IV, sees. 4A and 4B).
Originally, the Commission consisted of five
members. Three of the members had to be
judges, either of the Court of Appeals, the Cir-
cuit Courts, or the Supreme Bench of Baltimore
City. One member had to be a lawyer with a
minimum of fifteen years of law practice. One
member represented the general public. Chapter
789, Acts of 1969, increased the membership of
the Commission to seven members by adding an
additional lawyer member and a member repre-
senting the District Courts. Members of the
Commission are appointed by the Governor and
serve four-year terms. Members must be citizens
and residents of the State. Four members are
appointed from among the Judges of the Appel-
late Courts, the Circuit Courts for the counties,
the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City, and the
District Court. Two members must be lawyers
with a minimum of fifteen years of law practice,
and one member must represent the public. The
Commission elects its own Chairperson from
among its membership.
