A Chapter of the Women's Bar Association of the State of New York (WBASNY)
❑ On October 11, 2017, Justice Mark C. Dillon of the Appellate Division, 2nd Dept., was “vouched in” to help hear a case at the Court of Appeals in Albany. Vouching in is a rarely-used procedure where the state’s Chief Judge, Hon. Janet DiFiore, selects Appellate Division justices to substitute for Court of Appeals judges that have recused off a case. The appeal here was Bransten v. State of New York.
Interview of the Month
An Interview with
by Lisa Denig, Esq.
It’s hard to believe that 2017 is almost over and we are moving into a New Year! The prospect of starting fresh, setting goals and making resolutions always energizes me and I look forward to the exciting opportunities that a new calendar year always brings. However, my list of resolutions does not simply include the standard “eat better,” “exercise more,” and “be more efficient” objectives that many people set for themselves on January 1. No, my goals this year (and, yes, I DO make a list of resolutions – goal setting is an integral part of my life plan) include lofty objectives for us to reach as an organization. The WWBA is an amazingly well-run and vibrant group; but we can always climb higher.
