Issue: May a
Judicial Official accept an honorary lifetime
membership in a law enforcement alumni association?
Committee determined that the Judicial Official
should decline to accept an honorary lifetime
membership in the alumni association, in view of the
high likelihood of members of the association
appearing before the Judicial Official and, in
general, the impression of partiality to law
enforcement that may be unintentionally created.
