What's being said

  • NYS Supreme Court has many qualified justices that can be elevated to help clarify the rule of law and public policy in a just and ethnic- or racial-neutral way by their service.

    One clear Cuomo gift, father and son, to New York has always been a diverse range of judicial excellence being appointed, and this group is exemplary.

    Thanks Gov!

  • The writer erred concerning remaining number of vacancies. With these latest appointments, there is currently only one vacancy in the 2nd Department, not four.
