The Second Circuit ruled today on whether Judge Calabresi violated the Judicial Code of Conduct in some extemporaneous remarks he made at the ACS Convention last summer. The decision gives the full text of his remarks, his apology letter, and a follow-up letter from Chief Judge Walker. The opinion discusses both the remarks and whether ACS is a political organization. It can be found here.

Who We AreACS is a national organization of law students, law professors, practicing lawyers and others. We seek to revitalize and transform the legal debate, to counter the narrow conservative vision of American law that lacks appropriate regard for the ways in which the law affects people's lives. We seek to restore the fundamental principles of respect for human dignity, protection of individual rights and liberties, genuine equality, and access to justice to their rightful - and traditionally central - place in American law.
The American Constitution Society is a non-partisan, non-profit educational organization. We do not, as an organization, lobby, litigate, or take positions on specific issues, cases, legislation, or nominations. We do encourage our members to express their views and make their voices heard. The views expressed on this blog are those of individual ACS members and are not written on behalf of the organization.
