What about a judge with ties to groups like...say...La Raza? Or as someone else mentioned the Boy Scouts. Has there been any indicators of judicial impropriety or is it just because people disagree with it and think it looks bad. Im guessing there are at least a few congressmen and judge types that are members of...say Augusta National.
especially against women
were i to bring a title VII gender discrimination cased before the court in his jurisdiction i would seek his recusal based on his club membership
not acquainted with it, nor interested enough to become familiarWould you have said the judge who ruled on gay marriage in California should have stepped down or at least recused himself?
The code forbids federal judges from being members of clubs that discriminate based on race or gender.
this is why. if someone wants to argue about other instances, fine, but in this case, the judge is violating the code.
