Larabee v. Governor of the State of New York

Brief of Amicus Curiae New York County Lawyers' Association


Amicus brief submitted to the New York Court of Appeals in support of New York State judges' constitutional challenge to legislative failure to provide cost-of-living increases in judicial pay. The Court of Appeals ultimately held that the State Constitution's separation-of-powers principle was, indeed, violated by the legislative practice of refusing to consider judicial pay increases separate from increases in legislative pay, in Maron v. Silver, 14 N.Y.3d 230 (2010).
