SCR 4.120 Quorum
A quorum shall be 4 members. The Commission may act by majority vote of members present; however, the affirmative vote of at least 4 members shall be required for the suspension, removal or retirement of a judge for good cause. Absence of a member or a vacancy upon the Commission shall not invalidate its action. If because of disqualification or other inability of members and alternates to serve, a quorum cannot be achieved, the Chairperson shall certify that fact to the respective appointing authorities for selection of sufficient special members to bring the Commission to full membership in the matter. In such matter, the time periods of SCR 4.170(5) and 4.260(3) shall be tolled, and the full period shall not begin to run until the special members are selected.
