   National Rules Adopted for Judicial Conduct and Disability Proceedings (March 11, 2008) (Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts)
March 11, 2008: The Judicial Conference of the United States today approved the first-ever binding, nationwide set of rules for handling conduct and disability complaints against federal judges, bringing consistency and rigor to the process.

The new rules, which take effect in 30 days, are authorized under a statute (the Judicial Conduct and Disability Act of 1980) that allows any person to file a complaint alleging that a federal judge has engaged in conduct "prejudicial to the effective and expeditious administration of the business of the courts." The statute also permits the filing of a complaint relating to a judge's inability to perform his or her duties because of "mental or physical disability."

The release contains a link to the Rules for Judicial Conduct and Judicial Disability Proceedings.

   North Dakota Code of Judicial Conduct (North Dakota Supreme Court)
"The Code of Judicial Conduct is intended to establish standards for ethical conduct of judges."
