Statement from Speaker Heastie on Confirmation of
Chief Judge Janet DiFiore

On behalf of the New York State Assembly, I would like to congratulate Janet DiFiore on her confirmation as Chief Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals. Chief Judge DiFiore will be the second woman to hold the position, and her extensive experience and record as both a judge and a prosecutor demonstrate her extraordinary integrity and relentless commitment to the pursuit of social justice. I look forward to working with her as she continues her hard work as a public servant to our great state.
