NY: Appellesbians courted

by Jeremy Hooper

Richter-GarryAnd now in Sapphically-centric legal news: NY Governor David Paterson has appointed two out lesbians to the Appellate Division of the state court system. Judges Rosalyn Richter and Elizabeth A. Garry were named to the intermediate level late yesterday afternoon:

Paterson Appoints Two Lesbians to NYS Appellate Division [Gay City News]

This dual appointment marks the first time that openly LGBT people have made it to this particular division of the NYS court. And it's a doubly LGBT-erific victory, since one of their names openly advocates for the rights of trans people (Elizabeth a Garry).

Your thoughts

This is a great milestone. Not only because they are Lesbian, but because they are qualified and possess a diversity of thought.
