 In appreciation of their hard work and dedication to the associations, Alan Klinger and Dina Kolker were named honorary members of The Supreme Court Justices Association of the City of New York at their 2021 annual meeting held to recognize their support, as well as previously being named honorary members of The Association of the Justices of the State of New York. 

Stroock provides ongoing counsel to the associations regarding various issues precipitated by the State’s fiscal challenges, including an anticipated suit to challenge the recent en masse denial of certification to nearly 50 judges across the state. The New York Constitution permits judges who attain the mandatory retirement age to be certificated and continue serving the court system for additional limited terms. Given the backlog exacerbated by the pandemic, these judges are needed to speed justice to New Yorkers across the state.
