A Magistrate Can Dream

A recent opinion from the South Carolina Advisory Committee on Standards of  Judicial Conduct

OPINION NO. 4 - 2018

RE: Propriety of a full-time magistrate judge working part-time as an independent sales representative for a travel club.

FACTS

A full time magistrate has inquired about the propriety of working part-time as an independent sales representative for a travel club. The judge is a member of a travel club and has the opportunity to become employed as a sales representative. In addition to compensation for the sales made, a sales representative may also receive dream vacation packages, entertainment discounts, discounts on dining, car rentals, airfare, etc. from the travel club.

 CONCLUSION

A full-time magistrate may work part-time as an independent sales representative, provided that such employment does not conflict with the judge’s judicial duties.
