Constitutional challenge to Indiana's Code of Judicial Conduct before the Supreme Court

The US Supreme Court Blog is reporting in its "petition of the day" page (where they highlight questions that have a good chance of getting granted) on a case called Bauer v. Shepard (Docket No. 10-425) which asks whether various canons of the Indiana Code of Judicial Conduct that restrict speech and/or activities of state judges and judicial candidates violate the Constitution. Go here for a copy of the lower court's opinion and here for a copy of the petition for certiorari.
