The Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards has made a formal complaint against the state tax court’s chief judge, George Perez.

The complaint accuses the judge, appointed in 1997 and named chief judge in 2001, of falsely certifying in time records submitted to the State of Minnesota that he was in compliance with the time limits of Minnesota statutes for deciding cases at times when decisions in his cases were overdue, (2) refusing to accept new case assignments and directing court personnel to keep his refusal to take new cases secret from his fellow tax court judges, (3) failing to be fully cooperative, candid and honest with the board or its investigators during the course of the investigation into his misconduct, and (4) engaging in a lengthy pattern of failing to promptly decide cases submitted for his decision within the three-month deadline established by Minnesota without lawful justification for his delays.
