City Bar Rates Primary Election Candidates for Civil Court in New York City

The New York City Bar Association has evaluated the candidates running in the September 10th Democratic Party primary elections for Civil Court in Kings and New York Counties. The review was conducted by the Association’s Committee on the Judiciary. The Committee uses two ratings: Approved and Not Approved.  Candidates rated Approved have affirmatively demonstrated qualifications necessary for the performance of the duties of the position for which they are being considered. Kings County Civil Court, 6th District Hon. Michael Gerstein – Approved Isiris Isela Isaac – Approved New York County Civil Court, 8th District Ta-Tanisha James – Approved Lisa S. Headley – Approved Correction to the press release of September 3, 2015: In Kings County, Civil Court, 7th District, as Carolyn Walker-Diallo’s opponent has dropped out of the race, there will be no primary in her district, making her the Democratic candidate in the general election. She has therefore been removed from the list of candidates evaluated by the City Bar for the primary.
