    Comments due on or before May 20, 2015.

    DENIED August 27, 2015. The Court notes that existing Rule 2.3 broadly prohibits judges from manifesting bias or prejudice, and Rule 3.6 broadly prohibits membership in any organization that practices invidious discrimination, and the Rules' list of protected classifications is illustrative, not exhaustive.
