On November 17th, CDANY joined with the New York State Defenders Association (NYSDA) to send a letter to Gov. Hochul regarding the slate of nominees for the Judge Eugene M. Fahey vacancy on the New York State Court of Appeals.
In particular, CDANY & NYSDA wrote to emphasize the importance of the life experience that judges bring with them to their judicial role, and to emphasize our request that Gov. Hochul selects a candidate with criminal defense experience.
