  JUNE 10, 2002

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chief Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr. announced today that the Louisiana Supreme Court has approved the Judicial Campaign Oversight Rules proposed by the Louisiana Judicial Campaign Oversight Committee which will govern the operations of the recently established Committee.

The 15-member Oversight Committee, in place for the Fall 2002 judicial elections, is comprised of retired judges, lawyers, and citizens who are neither lawyers or judges. Along with the rules, the Oversight Committee recommended, and the Court approved, "Acknowledgment Regarding Canon 7 of the Louisiana Code of Judicial Conduct" and a complaint form.

According to Chief Justice Calogero, "The purpose of the committee is to serve as a resource for judicial candidates, to assist in educating judges and attorneys running for judicial office about the Code of Judicial Conduct, and to help deter impermissible judicial campaign conduct."

In furtherance of this purpose, an " Acknowledgment Regarding Canon 7 of the Louisiana Code of Judicial Conduct ," has been prepared which judicial candidates may voluntarily sign to certify that they have read, understand and agree to abide by Canon 7, which regulates judicial campaign conduct.

Additionally, a complaint form has been prepared and is available for use by citizens who wish to file complaints concerning alleged judicial campaign misconduct with the Oversight Committee.

For more information or a copy of the Judicial Campaign Oversight Rules, Acknowledgment, and Complaint Form visit the Louisiana Supreme Court web site at www.lasc.org or contact the Louisiana Supreme Court Judicial Administrator's Office at (504) 568-5747.
