    The JCB is and has been nothing more than an escape hatch for corrupt and incompetent judges. The article correctly exposes the disparity of JCB actions regarding two judges in the same court, and their respective treatments. Conahan is/was corrupt. JCB did NOTHING! Lokuta was more of a maverick. She was ousted, he was excused. The JCB needs more than an overhaul. It should be abolished in favor of a PUBLIC REVIEW commission where complaints are reviewed and if found worthy, should be made public. Judges would then be on notice that their professional performance is under scrutiny as well as their private indiscretions. It should take less than public embarrassment to get rid of a corrupt judge, which is what the JCB usually looks for.
