    Professor Rivera, was one of the best Professors at CUNY School of Law; she is insightful and well-rounded. A better choice could not have made. She embodies the true meaning of "persistent and determination."

    No experience as a judge, so what, no big deal, it's overrated anyway ... cut her some slack and look at the bright side, she's a liberal democrat.

    I thought almost all the finalists were well qualified, but if I had chosen it would not have been Rivera. (Then again, I knew almost nothing about her.)
    The beauty of NYS's modified Appointive process is that not only is influence by awful electoral/machine politics minimized, but so is the Governor's arbitrariness. We're almost guaranteed a well-qualified Judge, and we need not waste much time worrying about which finalist he picked and why.

    Superb choice!
    Stunningly deep intellect, great sense of justice, impeccable work ethic.
