The web page of the New York State Commision on Judicial Conduct has an announcement of a "rare" public proceeding:
Disciplinary proceedings are pending against Bronx County Surrogate Lee L. Holzman, who waived confidentiality. Information and documents pertaining to the Commission proceeding, and to a Supreme Court case initiated by Judge Holzman to suspend the Commission's proceeding, are available at Holzman Proceedings. The Report of the Referee who presided over the disciplinary hearing, issued by retired State Supreme Court Justice Felice K. Shea, is available at Report. Briefs submitted to the Commission by its Counsel and by Judge Holzman's attorney are available at Holzman Proceedings. The Commission will consider the Report and briefs, hear oral argument by its Counsel and Judge Holzman's attorney, and render a determination later this year. Oral argument is scheduled for 2:15 PM on September 19, 2012, in Manhattan, at 61 Broadway (one block south of Wall Street) in a hearing room on the 5th floor.
