Is that any different than a defense contractor hiring retired Generals, Admirals, and DoD officials? “hey, this guy is cozy with the chief justice. put him on the payroll to plead any case of ours that gets to the court…because there are no ethics or conflict of interest regs in the court” That bit of drivel the court issued last November, is not worth the paper it is written on. All it says is what a justice “should” or “should not” do. There is no explicit prohibition on certain activities. No consequences for violation of the code. It’s worthless.
