NYS Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics — Part-time Judge: Opinion 13-85

NYS Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics

Part-time Judge

Expert Witness — Curriculum Vitae

Opinion 13-85

Background: A part-time judge, who has been asked to testify as an expert witness, asked whether he may state on his curriculum vitae to be exchanged in discovery that he holds judicial office. The testimony he would be giving is unrelated to his judicial office.

Opinion: The committee concluded that a part-time judge, retained as an expert witness, may include his judicial status in a curriculum vitae to be exchanged during discovery.
