    It is interesting to note in relation to access to the courts the vast majority of commentary appears to be concerned with "New Yorkers" not withstanding the cultural and ethnic diversity of the city. Many non resident poor or low income people are obliged to litigate issues in New York out of country,for instance- non resident spouses of US citizens-support for this small but equally entitled group is worth a discussion within the New York legal community.The queue for Pro Bono representation in New York must run well beyond the block-if access to justice is the issue then overseas litigants ought to be equally entitled, don‘t you think?
