Law’s Cassandra Burke Robertson says Supreme Court justices should adopt ethics code

Clarence Thomas enlists lawyer to fight ‘political Blood sport’
Bloomberg LawCassandra Burke Robertson, the John Deaver Drinko-BakerHostetler Professor of Law, said that Supreme Court justices should adopt an ethics code that educates the public about what rules the justices are following and that holds them accountable. So far, the court has resisted calls to adopt a formal code of conduct. “The one thing that’s clear is that there’s a pretty high level of distrust among the public,” Robertson said. “That level of distrust requires more institutional integrity on the court.”
