WTNH News 8

(WTNH) - A Connecticut senator is looking to create a code of conduct for the nation's top court.

Senator Chris Murphy wants to hold U.S. Supreme Court justices ethically accountable.

On Thursday, he introduced the Supreme Court Ethics Act.

It would require the U.S. Supreme Court to adopt a code of ethics.

Supreme Court justices are exempt from the code of conduct that all other federal judges need to follow.

Sen. Murphy said after the nomination process for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Americans are losing trust in the integrity of the Supreme Court.
