Chief Judge Janet DiFiore

So, Now You're Chief Judge... 

 

CJA'S JANUARY 26, 2016 letter to Chief Judge DiFiore --
"RE: The Legislature’s February 4, 2016 “Public Protection” Budget Hearing:  
Will You Do Your Duty to Apprise the Legislature of its Own Duty?
:
            (1) to override the judicial salary increases recommended by the Commission on Legislative, Judicial and Executive Compensation’s December 24, 2015 Report because they flagrantly violate the commission statute, in addition to being fraudulent and unconstitutional; and
           
(2) to strike $33,760,000 of the Judiciary’s “reappropriations” because they are uncertified/unapproved by the Chief Judge and Court of Appeals in violation of Article VII, §1 of the New York State Constitution – and/or to strike $13,760,000 of this sum because it violates
Article VII, §7 and Article III, §16 and State Finance Law §25.
