Administrative Law Judge Michael H. Dorsky of Nassau County, N.Y., was initially charged by New York's 10th Judicial District Grievance Committee with three violations of the Code of Professional Responsibility, including engaging in ex parte conversations with a litigant both before and after she appeared before him in his capacity as a Traffic Violations Bureau judge. After a special referee sustained all charges, a N.Y. Appellate Division panel suspended Dorsky from the practice of law for three years.
