Do justice to NY courts

Newsday Editorial

"Albany is at its most maddening when a critical mass of elected officials publicly agrees that something should be done, and then nothing happens. That's been the case with too many of the important reforms that state court officials have sought over the years. With a new governor about to take office, that indifference to court reforms must change.Attention-getting criminal justice matters such as Megan's Law, civil confinement of sex offenders and drug-law reform never lack legislative attention - though not necessarily action. But when it comes to the day-to-day operation of the courts and the efficient administration of justice, critical issues are chronically ignored.The strength of democracy is that hope springs eternal - or at least pumps anew every four years. That's particularly true this year. The reform-minded Democratic Gov.-elect Eliot Spitzer, who has served eight years as the state's attorney general, is poised to take over from Gov. George Pataki. And the legislature has been juiced by growing public derision.What should officials do to improve the state's courts?"
