At its August 1990 annual meeting, the American Bar Association House of Delegates adopted the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct (1990), culminating several years of work by various ABA committees. The Nebraska Supreme Court assigned the task of reviewing the ABA Model Code to the Nebraska Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee. This Nebraska Code of Judicial Conduct (1992) is the result of the committee's work. The advisory committee suggested a number of modifications to the ABA Model Code. The reader must be aware that this Nebraska Code of Judicial Conduct (1992) and the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct (1990) are not fully interchangeable.
Adopted by order of the Nebraska Supreme Court on May 28, 1992, effective September 1, 1992. Renumbered and codified as Nebraska Code of Judicial Conduct §§ 5-201 to 5-205, effective July 18, 2008.
