The Discipline is to be used when an individual Member of the AGO or an AGO Chapter Executive Committee wishes to file a complaint against another Member for a violation of the Code of Ethics.
Neither the complainant nor the accused may participate through legal counsel. If either party insists upon involving legal counsel in the Discipline, the procedures shall be terminated.
Confidentiality: The proceedings relating to the Discipline are to be considered confidential. The final determination will be made known to both parties, but all discussions and any supporting documentation will remain confidential.
