State of the Judiciary


I spent today in Albany attending New York State Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman's annual state of the judiciary address. These events always feel a bit like reunions to me. It is a good reminder of how our work intersects with so many different people and parts of the state. In his remarks, Lippman highlighted seven priorities for the year ahead, including one that the Center for Court Innovation has been deeply involved in: reforming the way that courts handle criminal cases involving 16 and 17 year olds.
