In the Matter of the Hon. Cathryn M. Doyle, 106

The determination of the Commission on Judicial Conduct which sustained three charges of misconduct against petitioner-judge and directed that she be removed from office is affirmed, where: 1) although petitioner contends that she could preside over the uncontested non-discretionary matters despite her personal relationships with the attorneys, a judge's obligation to disqualify herself based on the appearance of impropriety has long been in place and has not been dependent on the nature of the proceeding; 2) the threes charges were properly sustained; and 3) the sanction of removal is appropriate.
