New York City Brooklyn Court Judge Barry M. Kamins
In a June 2014 report, the New York City Department of Investigation accused Judge Barry M. Kamins of violating the Code of Judicial Conduct by giving ex-Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes political and legal advice and by discussing cases being prosecuted by the District Attorney’s office. Judge Barry M. Kamins was relieved of all administrative duties pending resolution of the investigation. In the 27-page report, the DOI said Judge Barry M. Kamins shed his mandated neutrality when he “engaged in political activity by a sitting judge.”
Judge Barry J. Kamins was temporarily returned to duty as a Supreme Court Justice in Queens County in July 2014.
Judge Barry J. Kamins agreed to retire, effective December 1, 2014, under a stipulation with the state Commission on Judicial Conduct, ending both his judicial career and the Commission’s investigation.
