Statement of Samuel W. Seymour, President of the New York City Bar Association, on the 2012-13 Judiciary Budget

The 2012-13 Judiciary Budget is a reasonable, practical document, responsive to the State’s current fiscal pressures while addressing the need to provide meaningful access to the courts and to ameliorate some of the harmful effects of last year’s budget cuts. We support its adoption.
