Where are the checks and balances against the Supreme Court?

“There was a time when Chief Justice John Roberts seemed to care about the U.S. Supreme Court’s integrity and the American people’s trust. That is evidently no longer the case. Last year, after ProPublica broke stories about two justices who received but did not report favors from billionaires, concern grew that the nation’s highest court had no explicit ethics code for its members. In November, the nine justices responded with 14 pages of ‘canons’ and commentary — a step forward, no doubt. But because there is no enforcement mechanism, the ‘code’ amounts to guidelines rather than the strict ethics rules and sanctions that apply to all other federal employers and judges. Those rules prohibit federal officers from even the appearance of conflicting interests.” (06/10/24)
