Opinion 90-155

November 15, 1990


         This is in reply to your inquiry of September 26, 1990, concerning the propriety of your law firm's associates practicing before other judges of the same court to which you anticipate being elected.

         The Committee has previously concluded in Opinion 81-10 that, pursuant to section 100.5(f) of the Rules of the Chief Administrator of the Courts [22 NYCRR 100.5(f)], a law firm associate of a part-time judge may not practice before that judge or any other judge of that court.

                                                                     Very truly yours,


Samuel J. Silverman
