Part-time justice court judges standing for retention in 2016 are required to meet three minimum performance standards adopted by the judicial branch and enacted by the legislature.
Judge Brown met these standards:
- He participated annually in no less than 30 hours of continuing legal education for each year of his current term;
- He held no cases under advisement for more than two months; and
- He has not been the subject of any public reprimands issued by the Judicial Conduct Commission or the Utah Supreme Court during his term of office.
Based solely on compliance with these standards, the commission recommends retention for Judge Brown.
Judge Roy Brown was appointed to the Wayne County West Precinct Justice Court in 1988 and to the Wayne County Justice Court in 1992. He was born and has lived most of his life in Wayne County. He recently retired after working 35 years in the construction business and is active in civic activities.
