The inquiry into misconduct charges against Second District Court of Appeal Justice Jeffrey Johnson, who is accused of groping a fellow judge and harassing more than a dozen women, will be held in August in Los Angeles, the Commission on Judicial Performance said Friday.

Justice Judith Haller of the Fourth District Court of Appeal, Imperial County Superior Court Judge William Lehman and San Diego County Superior Court Judge Louis Hanoian will serve as special masters in what is expected to be a lengthy inquiry into the nine counts of misconduct filed against Johnson. The proceedings are slated to begin Aug. 5 at the State Bar court.
