Judicial Ethics, the Appearance of Impropriety, and the Proposed New ABA Judicial Code
In any presentation on legal ethics, it is common for the speaker to argue that we need more ethics. As the Duchess of Windsor (and others) once said, one can never be too thin or too rich. So also, many people think that one can never be “too ethical.” But neither saying is correct. Paris Hilton is proof than one can be too rich, and any anorexic is proof that one can be too thin. One can also be too ethical.
