The New York State Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that Leticia Astacio be removed as a Rochester City Court Judge. The decision was 7-0 in favor of her removal. The Court of Appeals heard Astacio’s case in September. Seventh Judicial District Administrative Judge Craig Doran said the Astacio matter has been a distraction.
Doran said what happen with Astacio should serve as a reminder that no one is above the law, not even judges.
