Canon 1

DUTY OF A MEMBER TO THE COURTS. It is the duty of a member to maintain toward the courts a respectful attitude. Judges shall receive the support of members against unjust criticisms and clamor. Whenever there is proper ground for serious complaint of a judicial officer, it is the right and duty of a member to submit his grievances to the proper authorities. In such cases, but not otherwise, such charges shall be encouraged and the person making them protected.
