An ethics complaint filed against the Supreme Court's newest justice, Ketanji Brown Jackson, is being reviewed by a committee with the Judicial Conference, which is the policy making body for federal courts. 

The Center for Renewing America, a conservative non-profit, filed the complaint last month against Jackson, alleging that she "willfully failed to disclose required information regarding her husband’s medical malpractice consulting income for over a decade."

The Judicial Conference's Financial Disclosures Committee is officially reviewing the complaint, Center for Renewing America President Russ Vought said, Fox News Digital reported Tuesday.

"We are hopeful that the Judicial Conference takes a long, hard look at the ethics concerns surrounding Justice Jackson and ensures there is not a double standard for justices," Vought, who is also a former Trump administration official, said.

"While the Left has made it a sport to attack the character of conservative Supreme Court justices, they’ve turned a blind eye to actual indiscretions and appearances of corruption actively happening," he also said, referring to heavy criticism of Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

The original complaint states that Jackson "repeatedly failed to disclose that her husband received income from medical malpractice consulting fees" and it suggested for the Judicial Conference to refer Jackson's potential violations to Attorney General Merrick Garland for an investigation.
