On June 29, 2017, the Supreme Court hand down list included this order:

No. 89-R-99013-SCT
IN RE: CODE OF JUDICIAL CONDUCT

ORDER

Before the Court en banc is the request to amend the Code of Judicial Conduct filed by Justice Court Judge Kenneth Adams. Judge Adams asks the Court to amend Canon 5A(2) of the Code of Judicial Conduct to allow justice court judges to become a candidate for a non-judicial office while maintaining their position as a justice court judge. Currently, Canon 5A(2) requires judges to “resign from judicial office upon becoming a candidate either in a party primary or in a general election for a non-judicial office …. ” After due consideration, the Court finds that the request to amend Canon 5A(2) shall be denied.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the request to amend the Code of Judicial Conduct filed by Justice Court Judge Kenneth Adams is hereby denied.

My problem is that I can’t find Judge Adams’ petition.¬† I went to the docket number 89-R-99013, and I do not find a copy of the “request”.
