Close to 180 judges and judicial candidates have now agreed to a higher standard of campaign conduct by signing the Tennessee Fair Judicial Campaign Code of Conduct. In doing so, they agree not to comment during the campaign on legal issues that might come before them as a judge, and if elected, to conduct themselves in a fair and impartial manner and recuse themselves from issues on which they already have announced how they would rule. To see who has signed the pledge, visit the 2014 Tennessee Judicial Selection Information Center. Candidates who have not signed but would like to, can also find a copy of the pledge there.
