New judges at the Appellate Division

I was actually excited to see some of the new Judges that are headed to the Appellate Divisions. According to the Law Journal, Lasalle (new presiding judge) and Higgitt are being promoted amongst others. Higgitt is a work-horse and very smart. He was one of the smarter law secretaries in the Bronx and I was delighted to see his ascension once old age forced some of the old timers to retire. I would say the First Department will absolutely benefit from his presence. Justice LaSalle I recall as being an even handed and fair jurist, this is his becoming the PJ is a fair outcome
