PHOENIX (AP) - The state Judicial Conduct Commission and a former Maricopa County justice of the peace have resolved a pending ethics case against him.

The commission says a hearing panel agreed no further action would be taken on allegations against former JP Clancy Jayne and that Jayne agreed to never again seek or hold judicial office.

A judicial conduct prosecutor had asked that Jayne be disciplined for violating judicial ethics rules and standards through conduct that allegedly included improperly using non-public court information and engaging in improper fundraising for events.

Jayne contested much of the prosecutor’s complaint and said it should be dismissed.

He left office in January after losing a Republican primary election last August.

Jayne served in the Arizona House of Representatives before he became a JP in 2008.
