February 23, 1973
Reference is made to your letter of February 1, 1973, directed to the Honorable
Vassar B. Carlton, Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Florida. As you know,
Justice Carlton forwarded your request to me as chairman of the Committee
on Standards of Judicial Conduct.
You are advised that a majority of the Committee on Standards of Judicial
Conduct are of the opinion that your appointment as ancillary administrator
under the circumstances described in your letter, will be consistent with
the code of judicial conduct.
Further, it appears that the demands on your time, and the probability of
conflicts of interest are not substantial.
/s/ GUNTER STEPHENSON, as
Chairman Committee on Standards
