APPROPRIATIONS FOR ATTORNEY DISCIPLINE


"Oh, oh, one other thing.  The Judiciary, the Judiciary has consistently
not requested funding for the Attorney Discplinary System, consistently. 
In fact, the funding has gone down. 
The funding has gone down even as they were clamoring
for judicial pay raises which they secured. 
The annual budgeting for the Attorney Disciplinary System is $15 million. 
The judicial pay raises paid out since 2012 are at last $150 million
and $50 million each and every year."

"24:  Can you explain why notwithstanding the September 24, 2015 Report of former Chief Judge Lippman's Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline recommending an 'Increase to funding and staffing across-the-board for the disciplinary committees' (Executive Summary, at p. 4), stating 'Additional funding and staffing must be made available to the disciplinary committees' (at p. 57), the Judiciary's proposed budget for fiscal year 2016-2017 essentially seeks no increase for its 'Attorney Discipline Program'?"

    "42. Can you explain why notwithstanding the September 24, 2015 Report of former Chief Judge Lippman’s Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline recommending an 'Increase to funding and staffing across-the-board for the disciplinary committees” (Executive Summary, at p. 4), stating 'Additional funding and staffing must be made available to the disciplinary committees' (at p. 57), the Judiciary’s proposed appropriation of $15,514,625 for fiscal year 2018-2019 is LESS than its 2011-2012 request of $15,547,143 – and only about $650,000 more than the $14,859,673 it was when the Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline rendered its September 24, 2015 Report."
