Connecticut Committee on Judicial Ethics
Informal Opinion Summaries

2009-16 (Emergency Staff Opinion issued May 15, 2009)
Advertising; Name, Use of; Fundraiser; Canon 5

Issue: May a Judicial Official and his/her spouse place an advertisement in an ad journal that is part of a fund raiser by the Judicial Official’s house of worship? The ad would list the name of the business that the Judicial Official and spouse operate from their home. If permissible, it would also list the name of the Judicial Official and spouse, but it would not indicate the judicial position.

Emergency Staff Opinion: The Judicial Official was advised that placing the ad in the journal was not improper under the circumstances. The Judicial Official should evaluate the propriety of the inclusion of his/her name in light of the caveats in Canon 5 (c) (1) and (2).
