In 2015, then-Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman created a Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline to review the state’s attorney disciplinary system and offer recommendations on reshaping the system. Public hearings were held across the state to receive views of interested individuals and organizations. The Commission’s Administrator testified at a hearing in New York City. The statement he submitted is available here.
