The Center for Public Integrity's “Juris Imprudence” project penetrated the veil of secrecy surrounding the financial holdings and activities of the nation's most powerful judges. The Center collected, digitized, analyzed and ultimately made public the financial disclosures of 255 federal appellate judges in an unprecedented, searchable database. Using those documents, the reporting team uncovered more than two dozen examples where jurists violated federal law by allowing their personal financial ties to overlap with their caseloads.
