The Ethics Of Judicial License Plates

The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct seeks comment on the nettlesome ethical issues that surround the use of judicial license plates.

The letter notes a number of policy considerations. Might placards rather than plates be appropriate for judicial parking purposes? Are there security risks created when the judge is away from the courthouse? Might a judge be accorded favorable treatment on moving violations?

When these issues get resolved, I hope that there is consideration of the ethical issues concerning judicial vanity license plates.

 We would not want judges driving around with ALL RISE or HANG THEM plates. (Mike Frisch)
