Missouri Supreme Court hears discipline case on Judge Barbara Peebles

The Missouri Supreme Court heard arguments today on the judicial discipline case of St. Louis Associate Circuit Judge Barbara Peebles.

The state’s Commission on Retirement, Removal and Discipline has recommended removing Peebles from her judicial position.

The commission says Peebles “engaged in a pattern of conduct that included taking the bench late and not attending scheduled court activities,” according to the docket summary.

Peebles frequently had her clerk call the docket, continue the cases, and advise attorneys of dismissals and certain warrants, the commission contends. It asserts Peebles went on vacation without properly advising her clerks, making arrangements to continue the dockets or providing a substitute judge to handle the dockets. It also said she destroyed a court record.
