The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct voted Tuesday to curb the responsibilities of its chairman, celebrity divorce lawyer Raoul Felder, because of what the commission described as the "racial, ethnic and religious invective" in "Schmucks!" a book Felder co-wrote with comic Jackie Mason. The resolution, which was adopted without dissent, withdrew from Felder the authority to serve as the body's spokesman.
