R5 Top New York Court Votes To Remove Westchester Judge Due to Loan Fraud

New York’s top court, the Court of Appeals, voted for the removal of State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Alessandro because he attempted to avoid repaying—and then concealing—a $250,000 loan from a campaign worker.

The court found that both Alessandro and his brother, Francis M. Alessandro, a Bronx Civil Court judge, acted to conceal the debt. While Joseph Alessandro was removed from his position at the Court of Appeals, his brother received only an admonishment.
