Gianaris on Resignation of Chief Judge Janet DiFiore

NEW YORK – New York State Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris issued a statement on the resignation of New York State Court of Appeals Chief Judge Janet DiFiore. The full text follows:

“Janet DiFiore’s resignation allows for a necessary recalibration of our state’s highest court after a series of wrong-headed decisions by her four-judge majority bloc has skewed the playing field in favor of employers who run unsafe workplaces, out-of-state corporations, and law enforcement personnel who abuse their power. I encourage Governor Hochul to choose a nominee who better reflects the values of our state and look forward to a more robust confirmation process to ensure that happens.”


ASTORIA – Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris is calling on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) to hold more in-person engagement in western Queens surrounding the Queens Bus Network Redesign plan.
