Conflict of Interest Notices

Under Code of Judicial Conduct Rule 2.11(2)(c), judges are disqualified from presiding over proceedings in which a lawyer in the proceeding supervises, or is supervised by, individuals related to or having certain relationships with the judge. That disqualification requirement is eliminated if the entity that employs the judge’s family member removes the lawyer from the family member’s line of supervision (Rule 2.11(C)). Conflict notices and the actions taken by an entity employing a judge’s family member to eliminate the conflict are posted below.
