In listening to NPR today, they highlighted a proposition to be on the ballot this November. It would allow judges to serve to the age of 80, instead of forced retirement at 70. If this prop fails, the current Court of Appeal judges are so old, that Cuomo will be able to nominate the entire bench if he is re-elected. This could be bad news if it takes Tresmond or others to get that far, if it takes that long.
Personally I have no problem with judges serving as long as they want to and are physically able to. And if Andrew Cuomo wants something, it's always to be voted in the opposite direction, because there's always a hidden motive.
The entire COA is liberal douches anyway does not matter.

By the time they are 75, most of them are relegated to working in a closet signing papers in uncontested matrimonial cases. Good riddance.

You do make a very good point. There was a Judge Harris here in Albany who used to regularly fall asleep during trials, though he always woke himself up at the end to sentence someone to 20 years. He was almost worse than Judge Clyne at being a really nasty ****.
