Should U.S. Supreme Court justices be held to the same ethical code of conduct as other federal judges?  Is legislation needed to increase the transparency and accountability of the Court?  What would be the implications of such legislation?  This webinar featured Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island), chair of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Federal Courts, Oversight, Agency Action, and Federal Rights, and Professor Amanda Tyler (Berkeley Law), an expert on the Supreme Court and author of Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union (2021) (with Ruth Bader Ginsburg).  Topics included the pending legislative proposal, “The Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act.”
