The pandemic’s dramatic impact on court operations has paved the way for the embrace of new technologies and approaches, with a focus on fairness, efficiency and efficacy. I am eager to work with Hank Greenberg and the Commission members as we seek to remove barriers to justice and prepare the Court System to effectively meet the justice needs of New Yorkers in the years ahead."
