    Supreme court

    Chalk one up for women in law! Governor Andrew Cuomo yesterday nominated Jenny Rivera, a CUNY Professor of Law, with no prior experience as a judge, to fill a state Court of Appeals seat!

    If confirmed by the state Senate, she will become the second Hispanic to sit on the Court of Appeals. Cuomo’s office praised Rivera, 51, as a defender of legal rights of all New Yorkers who would “make our state a fairer, more just place to live.” Rivera was a special deputy state attorney general for civil rights when Cuomo was attorney general in 2007 and 2008. Since 2008, she has been a CUNY Law professor and founder and director of the school’s Center on Latino and Latina Rights and Equality.
