New York State Bar Association President Henry M. Greenberg issued the following statement about Sen. Brad Hoylman’s bill addressing diversity in the judiciary:
“We are far from our goal of making sure that the judiciary — particularly outside of New York City – truly represents the diversity of this great state. That’s why the New York State Bar Association wholeheartedly supports Sen. Brad Hoylman’s bill, S.7703, to take a more in-depth look at this issue. It is an important and necessary first step for making sure all of New York’s residents know that they can find justice in a judiciary that is a reflection of their lives.”
