New York Child sexual abuse lawyer Ben RubinowitzThe COVID crisis has dramatically altered the way courts conduct business, but any judge will tell you, with a sense of pride, that the courts never closed. How have courts – an institution notoriously slow to change – adapted to provide access to justice throughout a pandemic?

Our managing partner Ben Rubinowitz will be speaking at a conference hosted by The Center on Civil Justice at NYU Law School that will address these issues. The conference will take place online Monday January 11, 2021, from 12pm to 5pm.

The conference will examine the nature of the way courts change and adapt in general, what specific trial and pre-trial rules and procedures have changed (and how), and which of these changes can be used to improve efficiency and access to justice after the COVID crisis passes.

New York Personal Injury Attorneys Rubinowitz and TorganIn their recent Trial Advocacy column in the New York Law Journal, NYC Personal Injury Attorneys Ben Rubinowitz of Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf, and Evan Torgan of Torgan & Cooper write: Whether in the form of a deposition, surveillance footage or an event captured on a nearby security camera, the trial lawyer must think carefully how to best exploit a video as a strategic tool for helping her win the case before ever questioning a witness. If used properly, a video can serve to leave an indelible impression that there is no doubt that the witness is a liar, cannot be trusted and is anything but credible.

Recently, the Administrative Board of New York’s Office of Court Administration took the unprecedented action of denying re-certification to 46 Supreme Court Judges, ending their careers on the Bench. Those justices were required to apply to continue to serve based solely upon their age. 

Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf stands with all New York judges in the fervent hope that this decision be reconsidered and each of these excellent jurists receive the individual consideration of their applications which they have earned. Now, more than ever, our citizens need confidence that they have access to a fair and functioning judicial system. The simultaneous loss of all of these hard-working judges greatly diminishes the ability of our Court system to ensure that provision of timely and absolute justice that provides the bedrock foundation of a just society. Even in these tumultuous times of unforeseen financial challenges, we hope that a place remains for so many talented Judges.  It is these Judges who have given their careers to serving the public and providing even-handed justice. Now more than ever we need their time tested experience to guide us through these difficult times and put us back on the right path ensuring justice for all.
