NY Top Judge’s Intervention in Critic’s Case Alarms Ethicists
Ethics & Professional Responsibility Partner Ronald C. Minkoff is quoted in the article, “NY Top Judge's Intervention in Critic's Case Alarms Ethicists” published by Law360.

The letter urged punishment for the Quirk, who had sent an email threatening to circulate a scandalous story about the Judge.
