UBI JUS IBI REMEDIUM - FOR EVERY WRONG THE LAW PROVIDES A REMEDY!
Working to bring Judicial Accountability to all levels of our justice system and agencies for the citizens of Montana.
"The man who does not mind the business of his government, is a man who does not mind his own business". Pericles..
State judicial self-discipline is a clear usurpation of State legislative powers and powers reserved to the people by the U.S. Constitution. We the people should directly oversee the State judicial disciplinary process to ensure a fair and impartial administration of justice! Corruption in our judiciary assures that corruption will remain beyond the law in every field of government in which it has taken root.
Judicial oversight is a power reserved to the legislature, not the judiciary. Our legislators have a right and duty to rest the oversight of our judiciary with the people.
NEMO JUDEA IN SUA CAUSA - NO ONE IS JUDGE IN HIS OWN CAUSE.
Honesty and integrity is crucial in all levels of our State and Federal Government. We the citizens have the constitutional right and responsibility for the oversight of our government. Today, our government is a self-policing entity that must be rested back with the people. Extant laws and codes of ethics that are not followed by the judiciary really do not exist.
Favoritism/cronyism within, is injustice.

The Montana State Council on Judicial Accountability is an affiliate of the National Forum on Judicial Accountability. Restoring the rule of law when breached is an obligation of, and should directly involve, all Montanans. We have engaged, not to judge-bash or manipulate, but to decry a judiciary that is self disciplined and essentially is their own arbitrator of whether it has been corrupted and is exclusively regulator of any attorney or judge who would object.
Judicial accountability is a big topic and people come to it from different perspectives. Quests for judicial accountability are as fervent as ever in Montana and America. We propose and maintain that average Americans undertake the power reserved to us by our U.S. constitution to conduct state judicial disciplinary proceedings independently, albeit under the auspices of the state legislature and in accord with due process. The National and Montana forums are grassroots, legislative initiatives to vest panels of private citizens with responsibility for state judicial and other state agencies disciplinary processes. When our current oversight agencies are negligent, do we really have any oversight? No.
Our contention about the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution:
The judicial branch of every U.S. state is delegated power by the Constitution to interpret laws, determine their meaning, and settle disputes. State judicial power is one thing. Powers supposedly reserved for state court judges, is quite another. State court judges are known to contend that only they are qualified to regulate and discipline themselves. We submit that for the judicial branch in Montana to competently interpret laws, determine their meaning, and settle disputes-our judges NEED NOT self-discipline.
So what's left....you got it....Per the 10th Amendment of our U.S. constitution, the power to determine whether our state court judges have complied with applicable laws, codes of conduct or ethics regulations is reserved collectively to the people of Montana and all other States.
We seek to maximize direct citizen oversight of Montana's judiciary and other government agencies.
