NYS Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics 

Part-time Judge

Pistol Permit Clerk — Simultaneous Employment

Opinion 13-130

Background: A part-time judge asked whether it would be ethically permissible to accept outside employment as a pistol permit clerk in the sheriff’s department for the county where the judge presides.

Opinion: The Committee concluded that a part-time judge may not maintain simultaneous employment as a pistol permit clerk in the local sheriff’s department.
