News of sexual harassment in the workplace—including the judiciary—has swept the nation. I’m thankful I’ve never witnessed or overheard sexual harassment in my courtroom, but this has me feeling unprepared for what to do if I did.
I don’t seem to remember what the Model Code dictates on this issue. Any help here?
I’m a member of the board of directors of a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that supports the local ballet company. Can I encourage people to buy tickets to this month’s production of The Nutcracker? To what extent am I allowed to aid in the ballet’s promotion?
Can I play golf, have dinner, or vacation with lawyers that regularly appear before me in the courtroom? Quite a few of my friends are lawyers, so naturally we spend a lot of time together. What are the rules about this?
