Maloney Praises Cuomo’s Nomination of First Openly Gay Judge to NYS Court of Appeals
Washington – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement after Governor Andrew Cuomo nominated openly gay Appellate Judge Paul G. Feinman to the NY State Court of Appeals. Rep. Maloney is the first openly gay member of Congress from New York and a Co-Chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus.
“I want to thank Governor Cuomo for making history and nominating Judge Feinman to be the first openly gay judge on the state’s highest court. Courts should be representative of the people they serve – and because New York has its fair share of LGBTQ people – its courts should too. Judge Feinman is a great choice and a historic appointment, and I wish him the best of luck in his confirmation.”
