Paterson Joins Crowd, Denounces Non-Diverse Judge Picks
Paterson is asking Attorney General Cuomo for "legal options" to being limited to the list, says the Buffalo News. There may not be any -- as a legal expert told Liz Benjamin at the News, Mario Cuomo had a similar situation when he was Governor, and was unable to buck the committee. But by complaining Paterson has kept from falling too far behind the curve; Assemblyman Peter Rivera has already joined Monserrate in denouncing the selections, as have others. At least the Governor can say he was on the side of the angels.
