Hon. Ann Pfau, Chief Administrative Judge

New Administrative Judge of Brooklyn Supreme Court, Criminal Term, Appointed

NEW YORK – Chief Administrative Judge Ann Pfau today announced the designation of Hon. L. Priscilla Hall as Administrative Judge of the State Supreme Court, Criminal Term, Kings County. The appointment was made with the approval of Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye and after consultation with Presiding Justice A. Gail Prudenti of the Appellate Division, Second Department. Judge Hall will replace Hon. Neil Firetog, who has announced he has stepped down as Administrative Judge to return to the Supreme Court trial bench.

"Judge Hall is a highly skilled jurist who has served on the bench for more than two decades. She possesses extensive experience and expertise in a number of trial courts – including Criminal Court, Court of Claims and, currently, State Supreme Court – and is superbly qualified to take on the responsibilities of her new role. I look forward to working with Judge Hall and welcome the boundless knowledge of the law and steadfast devotion to justice she brings to Kings County's courts," said Judge Pfau. "I also want to thank Judge Firetog for his contributions to the court over the last four years. He leaves behind a tradition of efficiency, hard work and innovation. I am grateful that he will continue to serve the court system and the public from the Kings County Supreme Court trial bench."

Hon. L. Priscilla Hall was appointed to the bench in 1986 as a New York City Criminal Court judge. She was designated an Acting State Supreme Court Justice and Court of Claims judge four years later, and was elected to the State Supreme Court in 1994. A graduate of Columbia University School of Law, Judge Hall began her legal career as an attorney for General Electric and later served as an Assistant District Attorney in the New York County District Attorney's Office; Assistant Attorney General at the New York State Department of Law; and Inspector General of the New York City Human Resources Administration. From 2001 to 2004, she also was an adjunct professor at Fordham University School of Law. In addition to the courts of New York, Judge Hall is admitted to practice before the United States District Court of the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York and the United States Supreme Court. She is a member of the Capital Cases Judicial Resource Committee, The New York State Judicial Institute on Professionalism in the Law and the Oversight Committee for Criminal Defense Organizations for the Appellate Division, Second Department. Judge Hall earned her undergraduate degree at Howard University.

The appointment is effective immediately.

It is vital to know who the top people are in the very important judicial branch of government. Citizens MUST be more aware.

Keep up the good work.

I still believe that PHAU is a distraction, so we all think OCA is addressing their serious and entrenched corruption. Throw ANN PHAU into some big stories (notice KAYE stays out of the appointments...right) and the attention and intention of those that want this exposed will quiet down! I know too, too much and i am not having it...PHAU IS OCA;S distraction...that is how they play the game!

While I understand some people's belief that all of OCA is corrupt-- my goodness, there must be at least one honest person. I pray that that person is Ann Pfau, and I still have faith that she will turn things around. If Judge Pfau really does the right things, many previously silent people will follow her lead in restoring some integrity back to the NYS courts.

It is amazing and sad that you continue to present Pfau and Kaye as reformers without checking the facts. They simply do damage control while they make sure that the system remains corrupt. Pfau wanted to have the Brooklyn Democrat's machine rigged judicial convention held in a COURTHOUSE. Judge Kaye appoints committee after committee to "study" corruption she already knows exists (and has existed since time out of mind)so that she can keep the corruption going while she sends out press releases pretending she is actually doing something. Please check your facts. Kaye and Pfau would not have their positions if they were not puppets. You need to stop falling for their spin. Otherwise, this site becomes counter-productive.

Kaye is, obviously, not a reformer, but can't we hope that Pfau is...... she did take on that connected rat bastard in the bronx.....

Behind Ann Phau is a load of BIG BOYS playing with all of you! OCA did not corrupt with women organizing it..be real....THE BIG BOYS AND BOSSES ARE USING THESE "FEMALES IN CHARGE" AS DECOYS SO THEY MAY CONTINUE THE SAME OLD GAME. THIS SITE WAS GETTING TOO IN TOUCH WITH EVERYONE AND REPORTS OF DEVASTING CORRUPTION WERE BEING EXPOSED....SOOOOO....THE GUYS ARE BRINGING IN DAMAGE CONTROL. NO WOMAN OR WOMEN CAN EVER OVERIDE THE CONTROL PANEL OF TOUGH MACHO NY POLITICS!
THE ONLY SOLUTION NOW IS FEDEARL...OCA WILL NEVER GIVE UP THE BOOTY THEY HAVE WITH THEIR JOBS..POWER, MONEY, SEX GLAMOUR AND LOTS OF RESPECT...UNEARNED! NOT EVER BUYING ANN PHAU OR ANYONE ELSE OCA DEEMS TO HAVE ETHICS!

We cannot hope that Pfau is a reformer. She would never have been picked for her position if she was actually a reformer. Who do you think put her there? Stop falling for cheap, patronizing damage control games. Wake up!
