NYS Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics
Expert Witness — Curriculum Vitae
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.
