If Nominated I Will Not Run...

The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct accepted a stipulation and discontinued a proceeding alleging misconduct against a town court justice. The justice had failed to disqualify himself in a speeding ticket case against his family doctor, engaged in ex parte communication with the defendant and sua sponte granted an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal of the charges. He resigned from office and affirmed he will not seek or accept future judicial office. (Mike Frisch)
