Ethics Prosecutor is an unclassified position, an-at will appointment accountable to the
Chief Justice. We have started a search for Mr. Bradley’s replacement. The Ethics
Committee will continue its work. The public confidence in the attorney and judiciary
disciplinary systems should not be affected.” stated Supreme Court Court Chief Justice Katherine Maraman.
