Judge May Be Removed For Lenient Stance On Domestic Violence

Brooklyn Judge Lorin Duckman, who is accused of a bias against domestic violence victims and having a record of lenient sentencing in domestic violence cases, is being investigated by the New York judicial oversight panel. Governor George Pataki has suggested that Duckman resign and save the panel the trouble of investigating the obvious violations of law.
