Today the SCOA handed out over 800 flyers to jurors in Queens County to make them aware of severe shortage of court officers and the lack of safety that causes. The Chief Adminstrative Judge recently told a judge’s convention that the courthouses are fully staffed and safe. We challenge Judge Marks or anyone else to answer then, why are there 14 parts unable to open today due to lack of staffing. 14 judges paid handsomely to sit in chambers unable to begin trials. Until that question is answered by this administration, we remain firm and resolute to continue to raise the public’s awareness of their continued war on court safety.
