The New York state Commission on Judicial Conduct has admonished a Rochester City Court judge for soliciting, from the bench, support from an attorney for the judge's Supreme Court candidacy moments before she presided over a case involving the attorney's client. The commission also announced Thursday the admonishment of an Oneida County Family Court judge who threatened to hold two child advocacy officers and their agency in contempt.
