Judicial Campaigns and the Appearance of Impropriety
Professor Ron Rotunda's most recent column at Justicia.com is on Judicial Campaigns and the Appearance of Impropriety. Worth a look... Go here. He argues among other things that the notion of the "appearance of impropriety" is inadequate as an expression of a rule. I agree and we are not alone. I have reported before on a number of courts which have rejected the notion at least as a way to determine conflicts of interests. For two relatively recent posts on that subject go here and here.
