ABC News investigates "big money lobbying of federal judges ... through the use of free junkets." Large corporations and foundations with interests in cases that come before the federal courts often invite the judges on all-expense paid trips. The main finding is that "one in ten judges, nearly 300 members of the federal bench, including two U.S. Supreme Court justices, have accepted the controversial free trips to one or several privately funded luxury "seminars" held at golf resorts, dude ranches and luxury hotels."
