    Seems like false advertising to me, especially if the misleading data were released as part of advertising or promotional materials (as opposed to some kind of standardized data disclosure format, such as Useless News & World Distort publishes annually).

    What a coincidence that two of the five judges on the panel are finalists, selected for their excellence and unimpeachable integrity (among other things), for appointment to the high court of the State. Governor Cuomo is required to pick Acosta, Abdus-Salaam, or one of the other five finalists in the first half of January. And these two are among the four finalists most highly recommended by the first independent association to weigh in, the NYS Trial Lawyers Association - a group that promotes remedies for victims of torts such as carelessness or unprofessionalism. Hm!
