The Daily Record quotes Andrew Jay Graham in article about judicial discipline rules

Andrew Jay Graham was quoted by the Daily Record in Rules committee to revisit judicial discipline amendments, May 13, 2018, about an order from the Court of Appeals of Maryland to the Standing Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure to review recommended revisions to the judicial discipline rules. Members of the legal community have raised fairness and due process concerns about the Commission on Judicial Disabilities' current rules and procedures for investigating, prosecuting, and disciplining members of the bench.

"I am glad that they are looking at the rules with an eye toward improving them," Andy said. "I think the rules might be improved in that they could make it easier for something appropriate to be done in response to something a judge had done or failed to do that wouldn't have the punitive effect that the present rules appear designed to have."
