❑ 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.

I ran across this quote the other day and thought it perfect for my final address as president of the Westchester Women’s Bar Association. I do, indeed, intend to rest from the myriad duties of being president of this great organization, but not without first being thankful for all the opportunities that the position has afforded me this past year. (Ignore the audible scoffing from my husband who would be quick to add that I never rest and, thus, this is an empty promise. “Rest” is a subjective term, defined in different ways by different people!)
