Supreme Court Code-of-Conduct
A key bipartisan bill was introduced (April 26) in the Senate by Senators Angus King (I-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) that requires adoption by the Supreme Court of a code of conduct for its judges.
Specifically, the bill will:
Require a publicly-visible, published code of conduct within one year.
Require that the Court name an individual to handle code violation complaints. The person will also be required to publish an annual report describing the information and complaints received and the remedy actions taken.
Give the Court authority to initiate investigations to determine if any Court Justice or staff may have engaged in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice, or that violates other federal laws or codes of conduct.
The potential for consideration of the bill in the Senate is not currently known.
