Last week's question was:
When can you appeal as of right to the New York Court of Appeals? (Partial answers are permissible.)
Randy L. Braun's partial answer--when 2 Appellate Division justices dissent--was correct!
The full answer is (from the New York Court of Appeals Civil Practice Outline):
I. APPEALS AS OF RIGHT
A. Individual Jurisdictional Predicates
1. Double Dissent at the Appellate Division -- CPLR 5601(a)
2. Constitutional Question -- CPLR 5601(b)(1) -- Appeal from Final Appellate Division Order 3. Constitutional Question -- CPLR 5601(b)(2) -- Direct Appeal from Court of Original Instance (When That Court Is Not the Appellate Division)
4. Stipulation for Judgment Absolute -- CPLR 5601(c)
5. Appeal Pursuant to CPLR 5601(d)
B. Rule 500.10 Review of Subject Matter Jurisdiction
Today's question is:
Who was the first woman judge to be appointed to the New York Court of Appeals and what year was she appointed?
As always, educated guesses only, please.
