A group of more than a hundred law professors from around the country has asked Congress to extend an ethical code of conduct to the Supreme Court for the first time and clarify when individual justices should step away from specific legal cases.

The group's appeal on Wednesday in a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees comes after recent controversies involving travel and appearances at political events by several Supreme Court justices, including Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia. Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said he plans to introduce legislation that addresses the issue.

About time.

As long as it addresses the true radicals from the left and their unconstitutional rulings that pass liberal legislation from the bench.

Where in the Constitution does it give the Congress the power to dictate to or regulate the Supreme Court ?

Excellent question, I don't remember seeing it anywhere but do they even take the Constitution seriously anymore?

Who can impeach a SC judge?
Who signs their paychecks?
Who pays their light bill?

don't think they can just write out a new set of rules for them that isn't already in the constitution, why do you hate laws?

mandating that states accept gay marriage for one. True that was not the federal supreme court - but it's a perfect example none the less.
