Amicus Brief in Spargo v. NY State Commission on Judicial Conduct (Second Circuit)
The case concerns a state judge, Thomas A. Spargo, who was alleged to have committed several ethical violations involving political partisanship. A district court judge held that the ethical rules Spargo was alleged to have violated were unconstitutional. The amicus brief urges the appellate court to reverse the lower court' s decision and hold that the ethical rules barring political partisanship were constitutional, since it is reasonably for society to expect judges to remain above the political fray.
