Two different bodies are involved, one that recommends discipline for lawyers and one that recommends discipline for sitting judges. The Supreme Court makes the final decision in both cases.

If ANY discipline of a sitting judge by the Court would mean that the judge could no longer serve (or run again, it is not clear from the question), then degrees of discipline imposed on sitting judges by the Court would be meaningless.

In other words, an admonishment would have the same effect as removal from the bench.

"Depends on why the person was disciplined" - in other words "It depends on whether or not I support that particular judge." :)

Judges?
What judges?
This is Indiana. We don't have "judges" in this state; we have front-line guards of the political bosses' campaign funds and funders.
