We write to encourage the Supreme Court to initiate the process of formally adopting the Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges, and to implement a mechanism for reviewing a Justice’s decision whether or not to recuse from a case. We believe Justices on our nation’s highest court should set the standard for judicial ethics by agreeing to adhere to the same ethical rules as other federal judges. Implementing these reforms will promote public confidence that the Court does all it can to insure its independence and impartiality.
