Gleeson Ruling Upheld

A state federal court of appeals just upheld Judge Gleeson’s ruling that judicial conventions in New York are unconstitutional because they’re controlled by party bosses. Gleeson’s ruling came out earlier this year, but was set to go into affect next year pending this appeal.

As a reader, who passed on today’s ruling, noted, “the defendants could always try to go next to the US Supreme Court.”
