Judicial Ethics

We believe that judges -- ALL judges -- should be held to the highest ethical standards. So we're pressing Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court to make that court subject to the Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges, a set of ethical guidelines which binds the rest of the federal judiciary.

We've spotlighted possible violations of the code by Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. Their attendance at fundraising events for the Federalist Society, a lawyer's group, and -- in the case of Scalia and Thomas -- at political strategy sessions appears to violate provisions of the Code.
