With its Per Curiam Order of April 23, 2009, the Supreme Court brought closure to a two year process, and adopted a new Code of Judicial Conduct, effective July 1, 2009. The Code, now binding on all Arkansas judges and judicial candidates, is the third Code to provide guidance and a basis for discipline. The Code, the result of 18 months of work, is strikingly different in its format from the predecessor, but markedly little changed from the substance of the prior Code.
