ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The Alaska Commission on Judicial Conduct filed an ethics complaint Tuesday against Anchorage District Court Judge Richard Postma.
The Anchorage Daily News reports the complaint accused Postma of exhibiting anger and lack of judgment and of failing to cooperate with other judges and his staff.
Postma has 20 days to respond. The commission will hold a hearing and decide whether to recommend action to the Alaska Supreme Court.
Postman was appointed in 2007 by Gov. Sarah Palin and is up for election this year. He was an assistant attorney general in Anchorage before his appointment.
