Statement of New York City Bar Association President Carey R. Dunne on Governor Cuomo’s Support of the Judiciary Budget

We applaud Governor Cuomo for supporting the Judiciary Budget. Adequate funding of the court system is essential if the judiciary is to meet its constitutional obligations as an independent branch of government and provide vitally needed access to justice for those who can least afford it.
