Referee Report Faults Holzman but Rejects Most Conduct Charges-NYLJ

Read entire NYLJ report by Brandon Pierson here.

A referee has found that Bronx Surrogate Lee Holzman (See Profile) should have fired Michael Lippman, the former chief counsel to the Bronx public administrator, and reported him to the First Department Disciplinary Committee in 2006 when he discovered that Lippman had collected excessive legal fees from estates. But the referee has rejected the rest of the charges brought against Holzman last year by the Commission on Judicial Conduct.
