Ed. note: Superceded by the Revised Minnesota Code of Judicial Conduct.
"This Code of Judicial Conduct establishes standards for the ethical conduct of judges to reflect the responsibilities of the judicial office as a public trust and to promote confidence in our legal system."
"Effective January 1, 1996, Revisions September 14, 2004, March 29, 2006"
"1. The attached revised Minnesota Code of Judicial Conduct be, and the same is, prescribed and promulgated to be effective on July 1, 2009. Because the vast majority of the provisions of the existing Code of Judicial Conduct are either deleted, amended, or reorganized, the existing Code is abrogated but is not reproduced in this order in strikethrough format. Similarly, because the vast majority of the provisions of the revised Code are new or reorganized, the revised Code is not presented with new material underlined.
2. The revised Code shall apply to all conduct on or after the effective date.
3. Unlike the usual advisory committee comments, the Comments included in the revised Code were adopted by the ABA as part of its Model Code of Judicial Conduct, on which the revised Code is based. We adopt these Comments with the intent and for the purposes stated in the Scope section of the revised Code."
Includes dissent. 47 pages, including text of the Minnesota Code of Judicial Conduct 2008 Revision with comments.
