Ethics

Our ethics committee reviews opinions from the Judges Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics that pertain to Court Clerks and submits consolidated versions of them to the Docket. They are also responsible to submit any other information to our members regarding ethics that would be of value to Court Clerks.

Ethical Issue Helpline

Any clerk with an ethical issue is encouraged to utilize the Nonjudicial Ethics Helpline at 888-283-8442 for any ethical issues that they may encounter as an employee of a Town/Village Court. This helpline was established and instituted by Judge Michael Coccoma, former Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for T/V Courts, to allow court employees to access and hopefully obtain helpful information for their specific situation(s) anonymously.
