, New York Law Journal


Justice Tom, in a speech to the New York County Lawyers' Association, said: The cases that came through the Appellate Division in the past century were a reflection of the history of this great city.

There is always crime, although today we have to address electronic crime, sophisticated financial crimes, Fourth Amendment issues involving social media, and many concerns that were unimaginable only a few decades ago. In sum, almost every kind of litigation that can be imagined for New York law will cross the desks of our staff and will land on our bench.
