PJP Board Member to Serve as Independent Prosecutor in the Paterson Ethics Case

Former Chief Judge of the State of New York, Judith Kaye, has just been named by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to serve as a special prosecutor investigating the alleged ethics violations of New York Governor David Paterson. Judge Kaye, who has served on the PJP Advisory Board and as the chief judge of the moot court since PJP’s inception in 2007, will be examining charges that Gov. Paterson interfered in a domestic violence case and that he lied to a state ethics panel about receiving free World Series tickets to Yankee Stadium last fall.
