Opinion 94-79

October 31, 1994

Dear Judge

         The Committee has considered your letter of July 11, 1994 in which you seek our opinion concerning a possible need for legislation or administrative authority relating to the use of FAX documents for bail or early release of prisoners.

         The authority of the Committee is limited to the consideration of questions of judicial ethics. Your inquiry does not raise such questions but rather is of a legal and administrative nature. Accordingly, we cannot provide an answer to your concerns, but we refer you to the Office of Court Administration or your local Administrative Judge for resolution of the question presented.


Very truly yours,


Samuel J. Silverman
