Appearance of Impropriety

The New York Commission on Judicial Discipline accepted the resignation of a town court justicein the face of charges (linked to the page of the commission's report) of presiding in a number of matters despite a personal connection to a litigant. The non-attorney justice is a social studies teacher and hostess. One of the charges related to the justice's conduct on her first day on the bench, dismissing dog control violation charges against a brother-in-law. (Mike Frisch)
