Vice Dean Keith Bybee Provides Insights to the Law 360 Article “Supreme Court Ethics Push Grows After Thomas Revelations”

Vice Dean Keith Bybee

Vice Dean Keith Bybee discusses in this Law360 article the efforts to enact an ethics code for the Supreme Court and the many issues it would raise. 

Bybee concludes, “We have a highly political system by which we select justices for the Supreme Court,” he said. “How we could get an ethics code that is enforceable is really just a smaller part of a much larger conundrum, which is, what [to] do with justices that are simultaneously proclaiming themselves to be impartial and yet are predictably delivering results that look to be political.”
