A local circuit judge has been appointed to the Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission. Andrew Bailey received his appointment by the Arkansas Supreme Court to fill a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge David Guthrie of El Dorado.
The Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission makes recommendations to the Arkansas Supreme Court regarding suspension, removal, involuntary retirement, or censure of the state’s 400 judges, including those retired serving as special judges and justices of the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, circuit courts and district courts.
Bailey was first elected to the 14th Judicial District Circuit Court in 2018 and was reelected to a full six-year term last year. The 14th Judicial District includes Baxter, Marion, Boone and Newton counties.
