Embattled judge begs for mercy

An embattled Brooklyn judge has asked New York's highest court not to suspend him while he appeals a recommendation to boot him from the bench.

On Monday, the state Commission on Judicial Conduct called for the ouster of Brooklyn Surrogate Judge Michael Feinberg, who routinely approved excessive fees given to a lawyer pal.

In a letter to the Court of Appeals, Feinberg challenged the commission's findings, which backed a Daily News probe that found he gave oversize estate fees to his buddy Louis Rosenthal.

Rosenthal was the counsel to the public administrator who handles the assets of Brooklyn residents who die without a will.

"There is not and never has been the slightest intimation that anything he has been charged with involved corruption or venality," Feinberg's lawyer, Harvey Greenberg, wrote the appeals court. "It is clear that [Feinberg] has mended his ways."
