Governor Beshear Reappoints Logsdon and Jennings as Citizen Members of the Judicial Conduct Commission

Jan. 29th, 2008 

FRANKFORT, KY – Gov. Steve Beshear has appointed Diane Logsdon and Joyce King Jennings as members of the Judicial Retirement and Removal Commission. Both shall serve for terms expiring January 1, 2012.

Logsdon, 65, is a hospital administrator at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown. She received her bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s College and her master’s degree from the University of Louisville. She is a licensed Registered Nurse and is certified in physician practice management.

Jennings, 57, is a self-employed event planner with JKJ, Inc., in Louisville. She is also a licensed real estate agent with Ken Hinton Real Estate in Pewee Valley. She attended the University of Kentucky.

The Commission functions under rules established by the Supreme Court of Kentucky and has authority over judges, trial commissioners, domestic relations commissioners, master commissioners and attorneys who are candidates for judicial office.

It is composed of six voting members who serve four-year terms; one representative and one alternate from District Court, Circuit Court, the Kentucky Court of Appeals and the Kentucky Bar Association, and two citizen representatives appointed by the Governor who are neither judges nor attorneys.

The Commission is the only entity authorized under the Kentucky Constitution to take disciplinary action against a sitting Kentucky judge. The group investigates and reviews complaints against judges and, when warranted, conducts hearings regarding the alleged misconduct where evidence is presented.
