New York State Bar Association President Scott M. Karson Issues Statement on Puerto Rico Discovery Day

By Brendan Kennedy


Scott M. Karson, president of the New York State Bar Association, made the following statement on Puerto Rico Discovery Day:

“Puerto Rican lawyers and judges have contributed so much to the jurisprudence of New York State and this country. Their mark on our legal system can be felt across all levels of our state and federal court system – from the state Appellate Division to the New York Court of Appeals, from the U.S. District Court to the U.S. Supreme Court. New York is proud to have over 1 million Puerto Rican citizens living in our state. I join them and the over 5 million Puerto Rican citizens across the country who today celebrate Puerto Rico Discovery Day.”
