“A February 2004 study for the Conneticut General Assemby by Christopher Reinhart of the Office of Legislative Research (OLR) discovered only 32 instances of formal investigation for possible impeachment of any state judge since 1785. In only 10 cases was the judge in question actually impeached, convicted and removed.”
