This is the second of two columns analyzing judicial discipline imposed upon judges who attempt to further private interests by invoking their judicial office. The first column reviewed cases—recent and since its inception—of the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct concluding that, in the overwhelming majority of cases, the sanctions imposed fell short of removal from office and, therefore, do not effectively support the public perception of the integrity of the judiciary. This column focuses on Court of Appeals’ precedents in this category of judicial discipline and reviews the basis for holding judges accountable for their off-bench actions.
