Bench and Bar United on Need to Simplify New York’s Court Structure

By Janet DiFiore, Chief Judge, State of New York

The New York Law Journal published Chief Judge Janet DiFiore’s article on court reform and NYSBA’s longstanding support.

I am pleased to join Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence K. Marks and Presiding Justices Rolando T. Acosta, Alan D. Scheinkman, Elizabeth A. Garry and Gerald J. Whalen—the senior leaders of our Judiciary—in addressing the most important issue for the future of our justice system: amending Article VI of the New York State Constitution to simplify our inefficient, outdated trial court structure.
