Backroom Judiciary

Kudos to the Judge

Ahhh ... what the heck! We thought we'd give one more shout-out to reformist Judge Margarita Lopez Torres (not to be confused in any way with former Council Member Margarita Lopez) for the historic decision that came down last week to rid the party bosses of their powers to handpick our Supreme Court justices.

Joyce Purnick of The New York Times talked to Judge Lopez Torres yesterday, and Errol Louis of the Daily News comments on the verdict today.

"But the trend of history has always been towards more transparency. I'm gratified that the process has been revealed for what it is, a sham. I have to have confidence in the process. And I do."
(- Judge Lopez Torres in The New York Times)
