Night Of the Hunter

The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct has censured a non-attorney town court justice for intervening in a matter that involved the complaint of his son about a hunter trespassing on the son's property.

The commission's press release notes that the justice arranged for the case to come to him, took a guilty plea and then transferred the case to his co-judge to impose sentence, and suggested to the co-judge that a fine be imposed. (Mike Frisch)
