All White Then

Liz Benjamin notes that, if confirmed, Governor Pataki's choice to replace Justice George Bundy (who had wanted to stay on the court and is African American) will leave the Court of Appeals with an all-white bench for the first time in many years.

Governor Pataki's choice, Judge Eugene F. Piggot, Jr., is currently a Judge in the Appellate Division, 4th Department.
