Appointments Made To Appellate Term, 9th and 10th Districts

NEW YORK - Chief Administrative Judge Jonathan Lippman today designated Hon. Edward G. McCabe as Presiding Justice of the Appellate Term of the Supreme Court, Ninth and Tenth Judicial Districts, and Hon. Daniel D. Angiolillo as an Associate Justice on that court. The appointments were made after consultation with Hon. A. Gail Prudenti, Presiding Justice of the Appellate Division, Second Department, and take effect January 1, 2004.

As Presiding Justice, Justice McCabe will replace Hon. Robert W. Doyle, who will be leaving that position to spearhead an initiative to address a backlog of criminal cases in Suffolk County. Justice McCabe was first elected to the State Supreme Court in 1985 and served for seven years as the Administrative Judge for the courts in Nassau County.

The appointment of Judge Angilillo fills a vacancy that will arise when Supreme Court Justice Allan L. Winick retires at the end of this year. Justice Angiolillo has served as a Justice on the Supreme Court in Westchester County for the past three years and presides over the Westchester Integrated Domestic Violence Court.

The Appellate Term of the Supreme Court for the Ninth and Tenth Districts has appellate jurisdiction over cases originating in County Courts, District Courts, City Courts, and local town and village courts. The Ninth and Tenth Judicial Districts encompass Westchester, Dutchess, Orange, Rockland, Putnam, Nassau, Suffolk Counties.
