The Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission will not dismiss 36 misconduct allegations against local Circuit Judge Richard Albritton.
But the JQC says it will clarify the charges.
Judge Albritton is accused of improper comments and improper conduct, primarily aimed at women and minorities.
The panel will spell out how Albritton allegedly violated the judicial conduct codes.
The JQC told the Florida Supreme Court it was agreeing to hear the case at Marianna in Jackson County, as Albritton had requested.
