The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct has ordered that a town court justice for East Greenbush be removed from office for misconduct in two traffic matters.
One of the matters involved improper intervention on behalf of the spouse of a fellow justice. The other involved a speeding ticket issued to the justice herself. She accepted special treatment with respect to the ticket.
The justice had previously served as the town attorney for East Greenbush and, in that capacity, was responsible for prosecuting traffic tickets. (Mike Frisch)
