Florida: Judge may not appear at a symposium on a specific legal issue

An ethics opinion issued by the Florida Supreme Court has ruled that a judge cannot ethically engage in extra-judicial conduct such as to present an address at a symposium on a specific legal issue.

By appearing with the principals involved in the Schiavo case, Judge Greer associated himself with an advocacy group, advocates for euthanasia and assisted suicide, both of which are prohibited by law in Florida.
