❑ 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.
You may have noticed that we have “Gone Red” this issue in recognition of the fact that February is “Heart Month.” February was first designated as “Heart Month” by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 and has been recognized as such ever since.
The purpose of “Heart Month” is to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and the numbers are staggering – on average, someone dies from cardiovascular disease every 40 seconds. While many people believe that heart disease affects mainly men, this is a myth – heart disease is the number one leading cause of death for women and roughly the same number of women and men die each year from heart attacks or strokes.
