Goofs

Chief Justice Ashland says that he would want an experienced judge to replace him. He suggests a New York State supreme court judge. But a "New York supreme court" is a trial court, the lowest level of court. The New York court of last resort is called the New York Court of Appeals. Chief Justice Ashland probably does not want a state trial court judge to replace him on the Supreme Court. See more »
