An open letter to the U.S. Supreme Court

SCOTUS needs an *enforceable* Code of Ethics. Please do better.

I’m writing regarding the new Code of Conduct for Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States published on November 13, 2023. While many of us have called on the Supreme Court to promulgate a binding ethics code, the new Code falls short of what we and the public expect from the nation’s highest court. Specifically, the Code is inherently flawed because it lacks a dedicated internal ethics enforcement body to advise Justices about their ethics obligations and investigate alleged misconduct. The Code is meaningless without a compliance mechanism.    I ask Chief Justice Roberts to commit to establishing an internal ethics office that provides detailed interpretations of the Code’s provisions and ensures enforcement. Only then will the Court assuage public concern with the numerous allegations of unethical conduct of Justices over recent years. Until then, we’re not buying what you’re selling, at all. Please do better. Thanks.
