New Judicial Conduct Code in January

Albuquerque Journal - After a tough year for the state’s judiciary, including bribery charges against a Las Cruces judge, the political activities of New Mexico’s jurists will be sharply curtailed under a new Code of Judicial Conduct that takes effect Jan. 1. Under the code, issued by the state Supreme Court, judges not involved in partisan elections will be prohibited from:
• Making contributions to political parties, or political organizations, including buying tickets for political fundraising dinners and other events.
• Making campaign contributions to political candidates.
• Speaking publicly in favor of or in opposition to any ballot measure that does not involve the legal system.
