LIHBA SUPPORTS PAST-PRESIDENT JUDGE HECTOR LASALLE

Our own LIHBA Treasurer Maribel Gomez interview on LIHBA and Judge LaSalle

LIHBA Letter of Support 12/23/2022

Press Release:

-Excerpt-

It is disheartening that many progressive elected officials and organizations have taken up opposition to Judge LaSalle’s historic appointment claiming that Judge LaSalle would push the Court against progressive policies, particularly in the area of abortion rights and labor rights. This opposition is based on a skewed and misinformed review of Judge LaSalle’s lengthy record.....

LIHBA prides itself on being a strong supporter of progressive causes and we have worked closely with many of the organizations signing on to oppose Judge LaSalle’s nomination. We ask those organizations to examine Judge LaSalle’s commitment to fairness, progressive causes, and equality under the law. He can be counted on to protect those rights we all hold dear and to make NY a strong beacon of support for progressive policies.

Joint Letter of Support 12/12/2022

Dear Governor Hochul:

-Excerpt-

We write to you once again because there have been personal attacks against Presiding Justice LaSalle’s judicial record which are not accurate. Justice’s LaSalle’s opponents’ analysis of his judicial record is a misinterpretation of the cases they rely upon and instead, reflect Judge LaSalle’s judicial independence and understanding of the judicial role.......

LIHBA Letter of Support 11/26/2022

Dear Governor Hochul:

The Executive Board of the Long Island Hispanic Bar Association (LIHBA) strongly urge you to appoint the Hon. Hector D. LaSalle to the position of Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals. The LIHBA board recognizes the strength of the other six candidates recommended to you by the New York State Commission on Judicial Nominations and while each candidate possesses strengths and experience that would assist the Court of Appeals into entering its next phase, Judge LaSalle alone has the administrative experience necessary to help the Court move forward.
