Southern District of New York Judge Harold Baer Jr. has dismissed most of former Justice Frank V. Ponterio’s claims that court officials had retaliated against him in denying him certification, but Baer ordered Chief Administrative Judge Jonathan Lippman to submit to a deposition within 30 days.
Ponterio in Ponterio v. Kaye, 06-6289, complained that he had been denied certification to sit for an additional two years on the New York state Supreme Court because he had threatened to go public with what he claimed was former Appellate Division, 1st Department, Justice Betty Weinberg Ellerin’s role in having him removed from hearing matrimonial cases on Staten Island.
