The North Dakota Judicial Conduct Commission will conduct a hearing into the sexual harassment and hostile work environment allegations, and the commission will then send its recommendation to the state Supreme Court whether or not Corwin should be sanctioned.
The charges were prompted by allegations by a court reporter who worked under Corwin that the judge pursued an intimate relationship with the woman and tried to kiss her.
The woman claims that although she objected to Corwin’s advances, he allegedly continued to pursue a relationship with her.
The State Court Administrator’s Office investigated the allegations and submitted its findings in a report.
Corwin has denied the sexual harassment allegations.
