Election likely following Rosa resignation

By Robert J. McCarthy

Though several local jurists are expressing interest in appointment to a vacancy resulting from the January resignation of State Supreme Court Justice Janice A. Rosa, recent history indicates they may be disappointed.

Albany sources point out Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has not appointed anyone to judicial vacancies during his more than two years in office, preferring to let voters make the choice in the next general election. As a result, unless Cuomo reverses course, a November ballot in which no Supreme Court elections were slated could now feature at least one.

Rosa resigned from the bench at the end of January, according to Justice Paula L. Feroleto, administrative judge of the Eighth Judicial District.
