The Commission has made public a stipulation that includes formal charges against Michael R. Clark, a Justice of the Hastings Town Court, Oswego County.

Judge Clark had agreed on February 24, 2015, in writing, to "vacate his judicial office on May 31, 2015" and never to seek or accept judicial office at any time in the future. Judge Clark rescinded his resignation by letter to the town board dated May 12, 2015. Therefore, his February stipulation becomes public, the proceedings against him are revived and the matter will proceed to a hearing before a referee.
