The LGBT Bar Association of New York (LeGaL) congratulates the Hon. Anthony Cannataro on his confirmation yesterday to sit as Associate Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, our state’s highest court. Judge Cannataro becomes the second openly LGBTQ+ judge of the New York Court of Appeals in its 170-year history.

Since March 31, 2021, the LGBTQ+ legal community has been deeply affected by the loss of our dear friend, Judge Paul Feinman. Judge Feinman previously served as a President of LeGaL and shared our mission of advancing LGBTQ+ excellence in and through the legal profession.

With the confirmation…

Eric Lesh

Executive Director, LeGaL @lgbtbarny. Attorney promoting justice in & through the legal profession for the #LGBT community. 40 Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40.
