    Petitioner seeks an amendment to Rules of the Supreme Court, Rule 81, the Arizona Code of Judicial Conduct to add a definition to the Terminology section and a provision to Rule 2.10. The amendment would specifically authorize a presiding judge of a court of record to make statements and provide statistics about another judge’s administrative performance in calendar and caseload management. The proposed amendment is the result of ongoing discussions during meetings of the presiding judges of the superior court beginning in June 2023.

    Petitioner asks for expedited consideration so the petition may be heard in August and, if approved, adopted on a preliminary basis with consideration for permanent adoption heard in December.

    Filed: April 17, 2024

    Would amend Rule 2.10 of the Arizona Code of Judicial Conduct (Rule 81 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Arizona) to permit a presiding judge to publicly comment on another judge’s calendar and caseload management.

    Comments due no later than May 31, 2024, and any reply by the petitioner due no later than June 17, 2024.
