Welcome to the website of the California Supreme Court Committee on Judicial Ethics Opinions (CJEO). The court established CJEO as an independent source of guidance on matters of judicial ethics. CJEO is an advisory committee authorized to provide ethics opinions and advice as requested by members of the judiciary and as suggested by members of the public. Composed of twelve current and former judicial officers, the committee is independent of all other entities and accepts requests from the judiciary for written and oral advice. In addition, the committee invites suggestions on judicial ethics topics that are of interest and importance to the community.
