Primary Date Changed

22 May 2012
Primary Election Date Changed

The September, 2012, Primary Election, originally set for Tuesday, 11th September, was changed to Thursday, 13th September, 2012. The bill, which past both the dysfunctional Senate on the 15th inst. (S7418 - introduced by O'Mara) and the Assembly yesterday (A10112 - introduced by some guy named Silver [Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets.]) was delivered to the Governor, who signed it.

This won't change the dates of petitioning and filing [E.L. 6-134(4) & 158] and the judicial nominating convention [between 18 and 24 Sept.; E.L. 6-158(5)], but will change the last day to register to vote for this Sept. Primary election.

Tumult in First Dept. over Well-Cloaked Deliberative Procedures

Dan Wise, a former long-time reporter for the New York Law Journal, reports that some judges in the First Department have begun meeting when they are assigned to the same panel to discuss the appeals on their calendar which in short order they will hear being argued. The story reveals that the convening of the pre-argument meetings has stirred controversy within the court and shines a light on a new development on how oral arguments are handled in the First Department. It also reveals a sharp dispute over what transpires, and why, at the meetings.

Now is the winter of our fiscal discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of Mario;
And all the clouds that lour'd upon our Senate
In the deep bosom of the Catskills buried.
