Professor John Burkoff told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the payment of judges' expenses to attend and speak at conferences resort-type locations is not unethical.  "Sometimes these things look bad when they really aren't," he said, noting some limits. "I certainly agree there's always a line where it gets excessive, if the meeting is in Galapagos, and (the judge's) family is coming and he or she is speaking for an hour."
