I'm posting about a story that broke last Friday, but better late than never. Governor Cuomo nominated Justice Sheila Abdus-Salaam to the New York Court of Appeals on Friday, April 5, 2013 to fill the seat previously held by the late-Judge Theodore Jones. Here's the Governor's press release. Here are some news article about the nomination: The Times Union here; and The New York Law Journal here. The nomination awaits state Senate approval.
