The Judge’s Conflicts of Interests and Loyalties

Judges and Conflicts…

Judges are independent.  Of everything and everybody.  They cannot be influenced by the legislative.  They are above all that.

Hmm…

Is this actually true?

Judges find themselves in a position that is unique.  They are employees of the State.  Presumably, like all other employees, they have to do what they are told.  On the one hand.  On the other hand, they must be fiercely independent, and not be intimidated.

How does the average judge discharge this somewhat onerous burden?
