Join us for a virtual event discussing a proposed constitutional amendment to lift the population-based cap on the number of elected Supreme Court Justices. Currently, there is a limit of one Supreme Court Justice per 50,000 residents. Should NY calculate the number of judges needed in every court as is done in 28 states and the federal courts on a regular basis? A report of the New York City Bar Association provides context and makes recommendations on how to address these issues.
