Today @GovKathyHochul committed to nominating a Chief Judge for #TheCourtNYDeserves. Our coalition of 135+ organizations agrees. We need a Chief Judge with a history of defending all New Yorkers' rights. Here's what that means. 🧵 https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-the-chief-judge-new-york-state-deserves-20221123-k65ukkzzajf57cxb6graeyvtse-story.html
It wasn't just control of the House and Senate on the ballot last week; the elections also had big consequences for state supreme courts nationwide.
What all happened? Our State Courts Manager, @BillyCorriher, breaks it down for @GOVERNING:
BREAKING: 48K University of Calfornia TAs, postdocs & other student workers just walked off the job.
It's the largest strike in the US since 2019.
Many UC workers earn < $24k/yr. A PhD student I spoke to said they donate blood plasma to make ends meet.
Unfortunately, we are required to postpone today's event on what comes next in the fight for federal court reform. We look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled event soon!
🚨 Some news! 🚨
We're thrilled to have @BillyCorriher joining us to lead our work to build state courts that work for people, not corporate profits.
Please join us in welcoming him on his first day!
