New York State Bar Association President Calls Retirement of Judge Paul Feinman ‘A Tremendous Loss’
Scott M. Karson, president of the New York State Bar Association, issued the following statement today:
“The New York State Court of Appeals suffered a tremendous loss today with the sudden and unexpected retirement of Judge Paul Feinman — an exceptional judge, magnificent human being, and a champion of the LGBTQ community. He has been a wonderful colleague to so many of us at the New York State Bar Association, and we are saddened that his tenure on the state’s highest court will be so brief. I join with his family, friends and admirers throughout the state in wishing him a speedy recovery.”
