(ConservativeHub.com) – The Financial Disclosures Committee in the Judicial Conference is looking into a complaint that was filed against Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, according to a Fox News report. The complaint relates to the justice’s alleged failure to provide information about the income of her husband in her financial disclosures.

The Center for Renewing (CRA), a conservative policy group, filed the complaint last month alleging that Jackson had “willfully failed” to include information about her husband in the disclosure, despite the information regarding the malpractice consulting income of her husband being required.

The group received notification on Dec. 21 that the complaint they had filed had been referred to the Financial Disclosures Committee for official review.

Former Senior Trump administration official Russ Vought and president of CRA told Fox News Digital that they were hopeful that the Judicial Conference would review the ethics concerns relating to Justice Jackson and ensure that the justices did not have a double standard. He claimed that while the Left has been regularly attacking the character of conservative Supreme Court justices, they do not appear to be taking such an interest in “actual indiscretions” that were taking place.

The CRA’s letter is also calling for the Judicial Conference to potentially refer Jackson’s potential ethics violation to Attorney General Merrick Garland in case there is a need for civil enforcement. It notes that federal judges are required to provide information about the income earned by their husbands if it goes over $1,000. The exception to this is only in cases where the spouse is self-employed. In those cases, only the nature of their profession needs to be included.
