207 Pa. Code § M.C.R. 7 - Lawyer-Member Practicing Before a Judge Subject to Judicial Conduct Board Investigation or Complaint

(1) When a lawyer-member is appearing before a Judicial Officer for pretrial or trial proceedings and learns the Judicial Officer is the subject of a complaint, or investigation by the Board, the lawyer-member shall refrain from voting at any time on any Board action with regard to the Judicial Officer on that matter. However, because a lawyer-member may have pertinent information concerning the Judicial Officer under scrutiny, the member may participate in discussions before the Board concerning the Judicial Officer.

(2) If a lawyer-member is assigned to a Judicial Officer against whom the Board has filed formal charges, the member must seek the Judicial Officer's recusal, and, if recusal is refused, the member shall refrain from voting on matters involving those charges that may come before the Board.
