Ginsburg will need to recuse herself in these cases.
Check it out:
A conservative legal firm is accusing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of violating the Judicial Code of Conduct, a set of regulations governing the professional actions of federal judges.
At the heart of the claim are recent comments made by Ginsburg about impending gay marriage battles that could come before the Sixth District Court of Appeals, which governs Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, as the Associated Press reported.
The Supreme Court Justice told an audience at the University of Minnesota Law School Tuesday that “there will be some urgency” if the appeals court backs bans on gay marriage, forcing the Supreme Court to act more promptly.
But if the Sixth District Court of Appeals rules in favor of same-sex marriage, she said there’s plenty of time for the high court to weigh in, according to the AP.
