Binghamton University hosts ethics panel discussion


The Binghamton University Alumni Association and Harpur College of Arts and Sciences will host a panel discussion titled “Ethics and the Court: A Judicial Perspective,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 11, in room 325 of the University Union West. The discussion is free and open to the public.

The discussion will focus on ethical issues faced by today’s judges at the federal, state and local levels.

The panelists are all BU alumni and include Nora N. Freeman, Family Court Judge in Kings County; Ferris D. Lebous, from the NYS Court of Claims in the Binghamton district and Acting Supreme Court Justice for the 6th Judicial District; and Frank Maas, U.S. Magistrate Judge, Southern District of New York.
