2012 Manhattan Dem. Supreme Court Screening Panel

The New York County Regular Democratic organization is forming a screening panel to interview candidates for the Democratic Party nomination for the New York State Supreme Court trial bench in the First Judicial District (New York County = Manhattan). There are four vacancies this year, and the panel will recommend between eight and twelve people as "most highly qualified" of all the applicants.

Unfortunately, only about half have responded. If you are a member of one of the organizations or know them, please help by seeing to it that a panelist is named. Notify Randolph Michael McLaughlin, the panel administrator, forthwith as the panel convenes shortly.
