Statement of Samuel W. Seymour, President of the New York City Bar Association, on the New York State Judicial Compensation Commission’s Announcement
While the New York City Bar Association appreciates that the judicial compensation commission approved the first increase in New York judicial salaries in 13 years, we are disappointed at the size of the increase. We believe a substantially greater salary increase is both justified and appropriate.
