We Are Surely All - BULL PITT - And We Do Like It

No "Distorted News" Here

Question

What Should A Just Thinking Judge Do When Offered The Benefit Of Cordial Friendship By Civilians Of All Ilk ?

"The new regulations quietly went into effect on March 14 and clarified that the justices — and all federal judges — must disclose gifts and free stays at commercial properties, or when gifts of hospitality are being reimbursed by a third party who is not the person providing it."ggl

Certainly, It Would Be Unfair To Propose That The Good Conscience Of A Justice Would Be More Influenced By Enjoying A Seaside Dialogue With Elitist Barons Of Fleet Street; Anymore, Than Such Would Occur By Joining In On The Street Swim At An Opened Fire Hydrant With Children Of The Lower Eastside Of Savannah, Tennessee. Each Venue Holds The Potential Of Substantially Persuading The Public Conscience Of A Sophisticated J.D.


Consequently, The Reporting Disclosure Of "Personal Hospitality Of Any Individual" Is Now Clarified In The Judicial Conference Regulations :

Notes: (1) The personal hospitality gift reporting exemption applies only to food, lodging, or entertainment and is intended to cover such gifts of a personal, non-business nature. Therefore, the reporting exemption does not include: • gifts other than food, lodging or entertainment, such as transportation that substitutes for commercial transportation; • gifts extended for a business purpose; • gifts extended at property or facilities owned by an entity, rather than by an individual or an individual’s family, even if the entity is owned wholly or in part by an individual or an individual’s family; • gifts paid for by any individual or entity other than the individual providing the hospitality, or for which the individual providing the hospitality receives reimbursement or a tax deduction related to furnishing the hospitality; or • gifts extended at a commercial property, e.g., a resort or restaurant, or at a property that is regularly rented out to others for a business purpose. (2) A judicial officer or employee is not permitted to solicit or accept anything of value from a person seeking official action from or doing business with the court or other entity served by the judicial officer or employee, or from any other person whose interests may be substantially affected by the performance or nonperformance of the judge’s official duties, but a judicial officer or employee may accept a gift authorized by the Judicial Conference’s regulations. See: 5 U.S.C. § 7353; Guide, Vol. 2C, Ch.6.
