Unhealthy Reaction

The New York Commission on Judicial Conduct has accepted a town court justice's resignation based on stipulated misconduct

On October 29, 2020, the Commission authorized an investigation of a complaint alleging that Judge Burker had been charged with criminal mischief for allegedly vandalizing a town official's vehicle by "keying" it while it was parked in a parking lot, apparently in reaction to the town's denial of his request to provide health insurance. Also on October 29, 2020, Judge Burker pied guilty to criminal mischief in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor, in connection with the incident.

The stipulation provides that he will not seek or accept future judicial office. (Mike Frisch)
