I was very proud of the Independent Screening Panel I helped organize to evaluate the qualifications of the Democratic candidates for judge in the Sixth Municipal Court District.
The panel put out its report, including the names of the "most highly qualified" candidates for the Democratic nomination, in the evening on May 1st. The recommended candidates were:
- Darlene Bruce, esq.
- Nicholas Moyne, esq.
- Shah Ally, esq.
Mr. Ally was also reported out as "most highly qualified" by the New York County Democratic Party Independent Screening Panel, and I was happy to lend him my support for the county endorsement. Ms. Bruce has since declined to run and endorsed Mr. Moyne, so it is likely Mr. Moyne will run unopposed for the nomination in the 6th MCD and Mr. Ally for the nomination county-wide.
All three are stellar jurists and I'm confident each will be an amazing candidate and judge.
