The U.S. Supreme Court has announced a new code of conduct aimed at addressing allegations of ethical misconduct among some justices. The development comes after months of news stories questioning the ethical conduct of Justice Clarence Thomas and Justice Samuel Alito.

The new ethics code comes from an existing one from lower courts but is tailored to the unique institutional settings of the Supreme Court. However, details on how it will work, who will enforce it, and its potential impact on financial disclosures remain unclear.

Critics have expressed concerns about the lack of concrete enforcement mechanisms, with some arguing that without robust oversight, ethical rules may lose their meaning.

The court mentioned the need for additional resources for reviewing recusal and ethics issues, indicating potential challenges and implementation.

While the court’s action is seen as a response to public criticism, questions persist about how the rules will be enforced and whether they will satisfy critics.
