22 NYCRR 100.5(A)(1)(g)
A judge inquires whether it is proper to attend a ceremony honoring public officials of Italian-American heritage who have recently been elected to public office.
As reported by the judge, the event is not sponsored by a political organization,
nor is it partisan in any way. It appears to be simply a cultural celebration.
Thus, the event is not a "political gathering" (22 NYCRR 100.5(A)[g],)
and the judge may attend.
