In the Libertarian Party, a judicial committee is a body that operates in an appellate capacity to review actions, such as motions of the governing committee or of a convention. The bylaws of the national LP and of various state and local affiliates define the circumstances under which such review may occur. Some enumerate specific kinds of actions that might be reviewed, such as adoption of platform planks (e.g,, for consistency with the Statement of Principles), removal of officers, or expulsion of members. Others may instead, or in addition, allow for appeal based on more general grounds such as violations of the bylaws or at the request of a certain number of members.
