Judges and justices should be subject to the same travel, gift and personal hospitality rules as members of Congress and the executive branch. The online financial disclosures database that the judiciary published in Nov. 2022 should include every judge and justice's annual financial disclosure report (as of March 28, 2023, it's missing 44% of them).
Get the justices’ latest financial disclosures from Fix the Court here.
As of Nov. 7, 2022, thanks to the Courthouse Ethics and Transparency Act that President Biden signed in May, the justices’ disclosures are now posted online in this online database, as well.
Under the law the database is also supposed to include the disclosures of the 2,700 non-SCOTUS federal judges. But as of Feb. 2023, only about 1,100 of them have been uploaded.
We’ll be working with our congressional allies throughout the winter to press the judiciary to fix these omissions.
We’re also working with a bipartisan group of senators and representatives in the 118th Congress to urge the judiciary to adopt the same exacting travel, gift and personal hospitality rules that members of Congress and top executive branch officials must follow.
If the third branch demurs, we’ll seek a federal law to fix this.
Fix the Court expects the justices' 2022 reports to be released the week of June 12, 2023.
