The Work Group to Enhance Administrative Standards Addressing Bias in Court Proceedings recommends amendments to California Standards of Judicial Administration, standard 10.20 (Court’s duty to prohibit bias), to support the integrity and impartiality of the judicial system and to promote a courtroom environment free of bias or the appearance of bias. The work group was appointed by Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye to identify improvements and propose amendments to standard 10.20. The work group was charged with ensuring that the standard, last substantively amended in 1997, reflects current law and current understandings regarding the elimination of bias and provides a framework for courts to work with their local communities to address these important issues.
