Kaye Will Lead Judicial Panel Paterson Once Criticized

ALBANY—Judith Kaye, who retired as chief justice of the state’s highest court last year, will now head the committee tasked with recruiting judges that was criticized then for not including a woman in its pool of applicants to replace her.
The Commission on Judicial Nomination announced today that Kaye was elected chair of the 11-member panel, and will preside over it until 2013. David Paterson named her to the Commission earlier this month.
“I am honored that Governor Paterson appointed me to the Commission and am now doubly honored to be chosen to serve as chair,” Kaye said in a statement.
