Opinion 09-93

May 19, 2009


Dear Judge :

         This responds to your inquiry (09-93) asking whether there is anything further you must do regarding insulating your law clerk from working on pending Family Court matters before you of the various attorneys involved in both the sale and purchase of his home and disclosing these attorneys’ involvement in your law clerk’s real estate matters. Based on your description of the efforts you have taken so far regarding disclosure and insulation, the Committee concludes that what you have done is sufficient to meet your ethics obligations under Rules Governing Judicial Conduct.

                                                 Very truly yours,

                                                 George D. Marlow

                                                 Justice of the Supreme Court

                                                 Committee Chair
