POKER LEADS TO JUDICIAL DISCIPLINE

District Judge Paul Hensley, a New York Judge, was recently censured for playing poker at a social club in 2008. 

The New York Commission on Judicial Conduct decided to censure Judge Hensley for playing poker and apparently asking for preferential treatment at the Fraternal Order of Eagles clubhouse, Northport, NY, since it appears that he lended his approval to the illegal gaming. 

Since the judge was remorseful and had no prior disciplinary action, a censure was deemed appropriate.
