Private Admonition of a Municipal Court Judge. (11/13/13).
The judge allowed her name and judicial title to be used to solicit funds and/or otherwise promote a fundraising event held on behalf of a non-profit organization that relied on fundraising to promote their charity work in the local community. The Commission also found that asking individuals to purchase tickets to attend a fundraising event, and using court resources (email and computer) would necessarily fall within the type of "fundraising" generally prohibited by the canons.
