The Inquiry Board

The Inquiry Board is composed of lawyers and nonlawyers appointed by the Commission to annual terms extending to the last day of February and until a successor is appointed. The Board acts in panels of three (two lawyers and one nonlawyer). The Inquiry Board considers investigations referred to it by the Administrator and determines whether there is sufficient evidence for the filing of a complaint charging misconduct or a petition alleging incapacity with the Hearing Board, or if the investigation should be dismissed or closed.
