Model Rules for Judicial Disciplinary Enforcement

Section II. General Provisions
Rule 8. Civil Rules Applicable

Except as otherwise provided in these Rules, the {rules of evidence applicable to non-jury civil proceedings} and the {rules of civil procedure} apply in judicial discipline and incapacity cases.

Commentary
Rules adopted by the commission pursuant to its authority under Rule 3.E(1)(a) take precedence over the jurisdiction's civil rules of evidence and procedure. See, e.g., Rule 13 on service, Rule 14 on subpoena power and Rule 22 on discovery.
