NEW YORK – More than 35 judges attended Judiciary Night, organized by the Hellenic American Lawyers Association (HLA) at Kyma restaurant in Manhattan.

The judges, including Federal Judges, came from Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Nassau and Suffolk Counties and had the opportunity to chat with and exchange views with HLA members.

The attendees, which included a large number of Greek-Americans serving in other positions in the Judiciary, received a bottle of Greek wine as a parting gift.

HLA President Chrisanthy Zapantis-Melis, thanked all the judges who attended the event and the members of the Association who once again participated.
