State commission admonishes Greene County judge

Kyle Wind in The Daily Freeman reports that the state Commission on Judicial Conduct unanimously decided to admonish state Supreme Court Justice Patrick J. McGrath, “for misrepresenting his jurisdiction over pistol permits and making “improper pledges and promises” in a letter to 7,000 pistol permit holders during his 2008 election campaign,” wrote Wind. McGrath serves in the state’s Third Judicial District, which includes Ulster and Greene counties. He has 30 days to appeal the decision to the state Court of Appeals.
