Reuters: Congress approves tougher financial disclosure rules for U.S. judges

Reuters: UPDATE 3-Congress approves tougher financial disclosure rules for U.S. judges. “Legislation that would subject U.S. Supreme Court justices and federal judges to tougher disclosure requirements for their financial holdings and stock trades passed the House of Representatives on Wednesday in a rare show of bipartisanship. The bill, approved on a voice vote after winning Senate passage in February, would make it easier for the public to see if a member of the federal judiciary has a financial conflict of interest warranting recusal from hearing a case.”
