City Bar Association Withholds Seal of Approval

As the Brooklyn district attorney looks into whether judges have paid to get seats on the bench, nine judicial candidates in Brooklyn have been refused the coveted seal of approval from the New York City Bar Association … The bar association gives only “approved” and “not approved” designations after candidates submit questionnaires, writing samples, references, and a full record of their job history. In addition, a special committee conducts interviews with the would-be judges.
