Gov proposes eliminating Supreme Court justice cap 

The proposal to eliminate the cap was recently outlined in a New York City Bar Association report published in the fall of last year. The NYCBA strongly advocated for the elimination of the cap in the report. ‘Throughout its history, New York State has struggled with an insufficient number of judicial seats necessitating stopgap measures that have only resulted in a complicated, overworked, and confusing court system that fails to provide justice to all,’ the report, titled ‘Repeal the Cap and Do the Math,’ read. ‘The dire need for additional judges overall is a function of the chronic failure to provide adequate judicial resources to New York’s Unified Court System.’
