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.
Of course, it is impossible for me to write this month’s column on anything else but the fact that March is Women’s History Month. Established in 1987 by the U.S. Congress, Women’s History Month gives individuals and organizations an opportunity to focus on the progress women have made in our country and the amazing courage of those trailblazing women who got us to this point.
March 8th is International Women’s Day but all month long the National Women’s History Project will celebrate women who fight all forms of discrimination. The theme is “Nevertheless She Persisted.” Many exhibits and programs will be open this month in various Westchester County cities, towns and villages and I encourage you to find one that appeals to you (and your daughter? niece? granddaughter?) as a way to celebrate the achievements of women through the years.
