In re Code of Judicial Conduct

Supreme Court of Montana

January 2, 2014

IN THE MATTER OF THE CODE OF JUDICIAL CONDUCT

ORDER

In 2008, this Court adopted a version of the American Bar Association Model Code of Judicial Conduct that had been adapted and refined to reflect the realities of the operation of the judicial system and judicial elections in Montana. The Court now wishes to add to the 2008 Montana Code of Judicial Conduct a rule requiring members of and candidates for the Court to comply with the same statutory financial disclosure requirements that apply to other state officials. With that purpose, proposed Rule 3.15 of the rules of Judicial Conduct would provide as follows:

Rule 3.15. Financial disclosure
Justices of the Montana Supreme Court and candidates for justice of the Montana Supreme Court shall comply with the financial disclosure requirements set forth in Section 2-2-106 of the Montana Code Annotated.
COMMENT
Claims of violation of this Rule shall be filed with and considered by the Judicial Standards Commission.

IT IS ORDERED that the Court will accept written comments on the above proposed Rule 3.15 for a period of sixty (60) days following the date of this Order. All comments shall be submitted in writing to the Clerk of this Court.

This Order shall be posted on this Court's website. In addition, the Clerk is directed to provide copies of this order to the State Bar of Montana with the request that it be posted on the State Bar website, and to the Commissioner of Political Practices for the State of Montana.
