But they are.
Lawbreaking corporations have been giving judges luxurious paid vacations under the guise of “judicial junkets,” labelled as educational seminars.
But these junkets aren't about education – they're about giving corporate allies and anti-regulation zealots a chance to indoctrinate judges.
Already, corporate investments in judicial junkets have paid off in the form of friendly court rulings for corporate special interests that damage the public good.
We have the opportunity to stop this practice and get the Judicial Conference – the federal watchdog that writes ethics and policy guidelines for federal judges – to issue strong guidelines outlawing this practice next month.
Add your name to tell the Judicial Conference to ban corporate payoffs to judges!
