NYSBA presidents endorses COA nominee

New York State Bar Association President Seymour W. James Jr. has sent a letter to Sen. John J. Bonacic, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, endorsing the nomination of Justice Sheila Abdus-Salaam as associate judge of the New York State Court of Appeals.

“On behalf of the State Bar Association, I am privileged to offer my strong support of Justice Abdus-Salaam for a seat on the state’s highest court,” he wrote. “After an extensive review of her court decisions, legal writings and qualifications, the bar association has concluded that Justice Abdus-Salaam possesses the judicial temperament, scholarship and genuine concern for the citizens of New York state that would make her an ideal addition to the court.”
