Supreme Court Manh. Screening Panel 18 June 12
The New York County Regular Democratic organization's Judiciary Committee's last meeting is this coming Monday (18 June) at 6:30 P.M. to finalize the organizations for a screening panel to pick candidates for the State Supreme Court trial bench. There are four "open" vacancies this year in the First Judicial District. [Eileen Bransten, Helen Freedman, Charles Ramos, and David Saxe, all of whom reach the mandatory retirement age; however, they may serve up to an additional six years if "certificated."]
In addition, two applicants will be interviewed for the position of panel administrator: Daniel M. Burstein, who is with Willkie, Farr, & Gallagher; and Randolph Michael McLaughlin, who is with Jonathan Newman & Lucas Ferrara. Douglas Kellner recommended both.
Under both National and local Democratic Party rules, these meetings are open to the public. If you are interested, be sure to attend! (If you are a candidate, send an observer.)
