Gift Limit – CCP § 170.9


The commission is responsible for enforcing the restrictions on judges’ receipt of gifts and honoraria, as set forth in Code of Civil Procedure section 170.9. The gift limitation amount in that statute is adjusted biennially by the commission to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index. On February 1, 2017, the commission adopted the gift limitation amount of $420, for purposes of CCP section 170.9. The gift limitation amount will be adjusted again in 2019 when the annual Consumer Price Index becomes available.
