Justice Arraigns Justice And Then Wants To Sue Him

A part time village court justice was admonished by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct.

The justice had issued an arrest warrant, set bail and issued a protective order in a matter involving rape charges against a defendent (Mr. Justice).  

He thereafter met with the victim and her family and was retained to pursue civil claims against the defendant arising from the same facts as the criminal charges.

The justice (acting as a provate lawyer) sent a demand letter to the home of a member of the defendant's family but there was no indication that a suit was ever filed.
