My answer was, sadly, yes, however I feel that even having that as an option that they took is saying a lot to our country's sad state of affairs. Having to adopt a code of ethics and conduct seems redundant to what our Supreme Court already stands for, which is (for its' members) the highest ethics and conduct that can be achieved. With that said, I will continually pray daily for our country.

I would like to know what the codes are. I agree with Linda Williams in that it should not be necessary. However, knowing that the DEMs are constantly attempting to fill the court with WOKE liberal/socialists, this is probably a wise, preventive step.

It’s a sad day when our Supreme Court Justices NEED to have a code of conduct.

So, does this mean they weren't ethical before? Our country is a lawless country now. The CCP and open borders are the biggest issues.

I'd like to know whose idea this was and what the code's provisions are. It strikes me as an attempt to "catch" Judge Thomas and make him resign. The charges against him are bogus and brought by the WOK-ists only because he is one of, if not the, most conservative judge on the Court. But, sadly, Deborah Frank is also correct, that such a code could protect us from excesses committed by liberal judges appointed in the future.

It is difficult to discern truth from non-truth in today's environment when reading public statements, even those sometimes written by so-called conservatives. I agree with comments above regarding the Supreme Court having to adopt a "Code of Ethics and Conduct". It appears, from what I have read, that there have been questionable incidents from both sides; both liberal and conservative. Here again, it is hard to determine actual truth at times. That being said, does this code of ethics carry with it a mechanism for accountability? If not, then it probably is nothing more than a statement on paper.

Why don’t they already have one? Teachers, doctors, realtors, MSM, and most certified and licensed professionals have to sign a code of conduct and ethics agreement upon employment. Wow! We’re learning so much about of government, both strong and weak.

I too voted yes. Its one thing to adopt a Code of Ethics another to enforce it and hold those accountable.

It will (hopefully) eliminate one of the wokes talking points against the conservative court.

I believe that the fact that they considered it as a possibility speaks volumes about the sorry state of our country's current situation.

A code of ethics is a standard all organizations and professionals should have and follow, whether appointed or elected. Accountability is important. It is unwise to pretend a person is incorruptible. We should hold all people in high offices or positions to high standards and remove them if they break with their ethics or codes of conduct. I do not believe priests or Supreme Court justices motives are greater than the man or woman next to me. That is why they do need a code of conduct or code of ethics that’s enforceable and has teeth. Unfortunately the code our Supreme Court adopted is rather toothless which should make us all suspect their trustworthiness.

Justices issue ethics code in answer to liberal critics; rules put on record to allay public By Alex Swoyer - The Washington Times - Monday, November 13, 2023.


"...That legislation has not received a vote on the Senate floor. It likely would not meet the 60-vote threshold needed to overcome a filibuster in the 51-49 chamber. The justices preempted the Senate by releasing their code."

"The Supreme Court on Monday issued a formal code of conduct after months of criticism from liberal advocates accusing some of the conservative members of the bench of unprofessional relationships with billionaires. In a 15-page press release, the nine justices said they follow certain requirements for recusal — such as not sitting on a case in which a relative or spouse is involved. They said they have always followed rules similar to other federal courts, but the justices put it on record to avoid criticism. “The absence of a code … has led in recent years to the misunderstanding that the justices of this court, unlike all other jurists in this country, regard themselves as unrestricted by any ethics rules,” the statement said. “To dispel this misunderstanding, we are issuing this code, which largely represents a codification of principles that we have long regarded as governing our conduct.”...In July, Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats led by Mr. Whitehouse advanced a bill requiring the high court to adopt a code of ethics.

To those wanting to know what the Code of Ethics says, see here:


Unfortunately, partisan politics have made accusations of ethics violations against the Justices common practice. Therefore, writing the Code of Ethics was wise. Otherwise, the Democrats in Congress would have written one for them.

I support this measure because it reinforces the importance of transparency, accountability, and ethical standards within the judiciary.

The United States Supreme Court's adoption of a code of ethics is a positive development that helps ensure that the Court remains a fair and respected institution.
