Censure called for Nassau County judge

The state Commission on Judicial Conduct, in a determination dated June 18 and made public Monday, has found that Judge David McAndrews should be censured.

The commission found Judge McAndrews, of the District Court in Nassau County, failed to file his mandatory financial disclosure statement in a timely fashion. Compounding the misconduct, according to a release, the judge failed to cooperate with the commission during its investigation.

Judge McAndrews has served as a judge of the Nassau District Court since 2010. His current term expires on Dec. 31, 2016.

“Financial disclosure by judges and other government officials is an important public policy,” said commission Administrator Robert H. Tembeckjian. “Failing to comply without a valid excuse and failing to cooperate with a duly authorized inquiry, are things the commission takes very seriously.”
