Rules on judges' gifts undergoing overhaul

WASHINGTON -- Rules on gifts for judges are being overhauled for the 
first time in 15 years, with a commission looking at ways to cut down on 
the trinkets, expense-paid trips, and other freebies given to members of 
the bench. The commission's work is garnering more attention since 
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia took a vacation with Vice President 
Dick Cheney early this year while the court was considering Cheney's 
appeal in a records secrecy case. (AP)
