Enforcement of Portion of Code of Judicial Conduct Suspended

Ohio's Code of Judicial Conduct Canon 7 is the subject of an order (scroll down to the bottom of page 2) handed down today by the Supreme Court of Ohio.

In re Enforcement of Canons 7(B)(3)(a)(iv), 7(B)(3)(b) and 7(D)(2)

The above should take care of another federal lawsuit that concerned last year's election and the identification of party affiliation by a judge during an election campaign. The last Canon section mentioned above deals with the use of the term "judge" when a judge is a candidate for another judicial office and does not indicate the court on which the judge currently serves.
