Mission

The State Constitution established the Commission on Judicial Nomination to evaluate candidates and make recommendations to the Governor for appointment to the Court of Appeals, the State's highest court.

Organization and Staffing

The Commission on Judicial Nomination has 12 members appointed by the Governor, the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals and the Legislature. These members serve without pay and conduct the search for qualified candidates upon formal notification of a vacancy on the Court of Appeals.

Budget Highlights

The FY 2019 Executive Budget recommends $30,000 for the Commission, unchanged from FY 2018.

Program Highlights

When a vacancy on the Court of Appeals occurs or is known to be imminent, the Commission broadly solicits applications from candidates who reflect the diversity of the citizenry of the State of New York, and then considers all interested candidates. From these candidates, the Commission selects, based on merit, a slate of well-qualified nominees.
