Nora Anderson should be allowed to become Manhattan surrogate on Jan. 1, even as the Manhattan DA prosecutes her on felony charges of concealing improper political contributions during her campaign for the bench, her attorney has told New York state's high court. If the court decides to suspend Anderson, the attorney is urging that it do so with pay because Anderson is supporting an ill mother and brother, and the surrogate-elect will be prohibited from practicing law when her term begins on Jan. 1.
