Opinion 10-62

May 12, 2010



Dear Justice:

         This responds to your inquiry (10-62) asking whether you may sponsor and move the admission of your child to practice in federal district court. The Committee has previously determined that it is ethically permissible for a judge to appear in court for this limited purpose. Enclosed for your convenience is Opinion 08-127, which addresses this issue.  

Very truly yours,



George D. Marlow, Associate Justice

Appellate Division, 1st Dept (Ret.)

Committee Chair
