Digest: A judge may be honored at a hospital’s non-fundraising luncheon.
Rule: 22 NYCRR §100.5(b).
A full-time judge asks whether the judge my be honored at an annual, non-fundraising luncheon held by a hospital and children’s rehabilitation center.
Section 100.5 (b) permits judges to participate in charitable activities provided that no fundraising is involved. Thus, as the luncheon is not a fundraiser, the judge may be honored at the luncheon.
