❑ 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.

Q: You just finished your year as WWBA President. Please tell us the accomplishments of which you are most proud?
by Kim Berg, Esq.
The WWBA 2018-2019 year kicked off with our extraordinary celebration and swearing in of officers at the WWBA Annual Dinner at the beautiful Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club on June 6, 2018. In my speech, I discussed the importance of having historical perspective and how, with reflection on past events and hindsight being “20/20” we can use historical perspective to set the guideposts for our future course. Having had the tremendous benefit of serving as President Elect last year under the tutelage of Past President Lisa Denig, I have spent the summer months planning and setting in motion the WWBA’s future course for the upcoming year.
