|Tulare County Superior Court Judge Valeriano Saucedo|
Saucedo, a judge since 2001, allegedly accused his court clerk in an anonymous letter of having an affair and then gave her thousands of dollars worth of gifts.
The three-judge panel will report its findings to the Commission on Judicial Performance. If the commission finds clear and convincing evidence of wrongdoing by Saucedo, it could remove him from office or impose lesser discipline.
The hearing will be held at the Fifth District Court of Appeal and is open to the public.
