Miranda Warnings Hosts Debate on NYS Court of Appeals Selection Process and Looks Ahead to November Election
Miranda Warnings is back in the studio for a new edgy podcast debating all things courts and politics in New York State. Host David Miranda, past president and general counsel of the New York State Bar Association, referees the verbal jabs between Albany Law professor Vin Bonventre and veteran political reporter and strategist Liz Benjamin.
On this month’s episode, the experts discuss recent efforts to influence the commission considering candidates for Governor Hochul to nominate to the NYS Court of Appeals. Was it appropriate for 20 New York State senators to write a letter to the Commission on Judicial Nomination outlining the qualities they hope to see in the next chief judge of the New York State Court of Appeals?
The panel also looks at the winners and losers of the summer primaries for governor and NYS Assembly and Senate. How did progressive candidates fare over more centrists Democrats in those races? Looking ahead to the general election, how will issues tied to law and order play in the race for governor?

Miranda, Benjamin and Bonventre record the roundtable monthly, discussing current events and court news in New York State and across the country. The 2022-23 schedule of “Miranda Warnings” includes two episodes a month released between September and June.
