NY commission hearing set on attorney discipline

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A new state panel examining how attorneys are disciplined in New York plans to hold its first public hearing next week.

The Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline is set to meet for two hours on Tuesday at the Court of Appeals in Albany.

Other hearings are scheduled Aug. 4 in Buffalo and Aug. 11 in Manhattan.

Issues before the commission appointed by Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman include whether disciplinary charges or findings should be made public earlier as a consumer protection matter.

The panel will also examine whether there should be more uniformity in the approaches by the state's four judicial departments.

I hope there's a great public turn out! This is a chance for NY citizens to be heard.

I think these meetings are just to take the public's temperature - no action.
