Another “ice bucket” opinion

The number of advisory opinions on judges participating in the “ice bucket challenge” to raise funds for ALS is now up to two with Tuesday’s release of an opinion from the New York Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics stating that a judge may not participate in the challenge because each participant is required to publicize her participation and publicly solicit other participants.  However, the committee stated a judge may contribute if she does so without personally soliciting funds or otherwise promoting the fund-raiser.
