There is no constitutional provision for this question. I'd say that there simply is no legal obligation for the justices to recluse themselves. (Even if there was, there is no higher court to enforce such a rule.)

How does the power of an absolute ruler like the Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt differ from that of a constitutional monarch like Queen Elizabeth of Great Brittan?

An absolute ruler has the ability to create, sign off on, and enforce any rule, law, edict, or judgment that he desires. He is not required to listen to anyone's opinion, though he may solicit it and he is not required to follow any laws himself. A constitutional monarch is bound by a constitution, restricting his power as concerns his abilities to create, sign off on, and enforce rules, laws, edicts, and judgments. In the case of Queen Elizabeth I, she had no power to create laws and rules and could only issue edicts or sign off on laws or rules given to her by the legislature. Additionally, because the judiciary was a separate branch she had no direct authority over judgments. The most important difference between a constitutional monarch and an absolute monarch is that the constitutional monarch is bound by the law and can be held accountable for his actions; the absolute monarch is above the law.

Do police enforce civil judgments?

In general, the police do not enforce civil judgments. Judgments are enforced by court appointed officers or sheriff's offices (such as in conducting sales of foreclosed properties). At times police may be called to help ensure that nothing violent occurs during execution of a judgment such as an eviction; however, they would not normally do the actual eviction. They would be there to ensure the safety of the court authorized person who would do the physical eviction. Practices vary among the states, therefore one must look to the laws of the appropriate state for a more complete and specific answer to a question like this.
