Don't Walk

A recent opinion from the ever-busy Florida Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee:

    ISSUES: 1. May a judge participate in a charity walkathon wearing  a shirt with a “team name” based on the name of a local attorney in private  practice?

    ANSWER: No.

    2. May a judge’s spouse donate and solicit funds on the  spouse’s behalf and on behalf of the team named for the local lawyer?

    ANSWER: Yes, as long as the judge is not seeking to  solicit funds vicariously through the efforts of the judge’s spouse.
