New York Trial Justices Oppose Role In Chief Judge’s New Screening Committees

New judicial selection rules in New York faced a new problem today when the New York Law Journal reported on its front page that trial justices are opposed to their being part of new screening committees, being set up by Chief Judge Judith Kaye.

A resolution was adopted unanimously by more than 100 justices who attended the association’s Jan. 27 annual meeting.
