A Kingston, Pa., attorney has been identified by sources and court documents as the person who provided Luzerne County Common Pleas Judge Michael T. Toole with “things of value,” including free use of a New Jersey beach house, while continuing to litigate cases before the judge.

Court records show that Harry V. Cardoni, the managing member of Cardoni & Associates, filed a petition to appoint a neutral arbitrator in a March 2006 case, Gazenski v. Erie Insurance Exchange, that was handled by Toole.
