Opinion 90-64

June 7, 1990


Digest:         An election committee may be formed for the dual purpose of re-electing a judge to one Court and assisting in his election to          another Court.


Rules:          22 NYCRR 100.7.


         A judge inquires whether an election committee may be established for the dual purpose of campaigning for the judge's re-election to one Court as well as his election to another court.

         There is no ethical prohibition to forming a committee to assist a judicial candidate for two offices. However, this committee is not passing on the legality of such a situation.
