Hon. Lawrence K. Marks Named Chief Administrative Judge

New York ─ Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman today announced the appointment of Hon. Lawrence K. Marks to the position of Chief Administrative Judge of the New York State court system. The appointment, which will take effect on July 31, was made with the approval of the Administrative Board of the Courts. Judge Marks succeeds Hon. A. Gail Prudenti, who is leaving her position as Chief Administrative Judge to serve as Executive Director of the Center for Children, Families and the Law at Hofstra University’s School of Law.

Chief Judge Lippman stated, “I am absolutely delighted that Judge Marks has agreed to serve as Chief Administrative Judge of the New York state courts. He is a highly accomplished judge and administrator who brings an array of talents and a wealth of institutional knowledge to this difficult assignment. Judge Marks has provided invaluable leadership as First Deputy Chief Administrative Judge since 2012 and over the course of an outstanding court career that spans more than two decades, helping implement crucial reforms to streamline court operations, enhance public access to the courts and trim case backlogs, among others. While I am heartened by the advances achieved during my tenure as Chief Judge to make the court system more efficient, accessible and transparent, more work remains toward ensuring equal justice for all New Yorkers and fostering public confidence in our justice system. Judge Marks is the best candidate to take on these enormous challenges. I have every confidence that his superb credentials, combined with his keen judgment, tireless work ethic and other fine attributes, will serve him well as we continue to make headway on so many critical issues, such as bail reform, juvenile justice reform and the elimination of New York’s justice gap, to name a few.”

Judge Marks said, “I am honored that Chief Judge Lippman has asked me to serve as Chief Administrative Judge and assume the myriad responsibilities of this challenging position. As Chief Administrative Judge, I will strive to further the Judiciary’s progress on key programs and efforts to promote a more efficient, accessible and equitable justice system that addresses the growing needs of New Yorkers in each of our 62 counties, including our most vulnerable residents. I look forward to working with the Chief Judge, the court system’s outstanding judges and non-judicial personnel, and our justice system partners as we build on our past successes and continue to find new ways to enhance the delivery and quality of justice statewide.”

Pursuant to Article VI, Section 28 of the New York State Constitution, the Chief Administrative Judge supervises the daily administration and operation of the Unified Court System, which has a budget of $2.5 billion, 3,600 state and locally paid judges, and 15,000 non- judicial employees in over 300 courthouses around the state. The Chief Administrative Judge is responsible for the performance, efficiency and productivity of every trial court in the state and works closely with the Chief Judge, Presiding Justices, Deputy Chief Administrative Judges and local administrative judges to review the performance of the courts, ensure the proper assignment of judges and court personnel, and implement policies and standards governing practice and procedure in the courts and the legal profession.

Judge Marks has performed a key management, policy and legal role in the state court system for many years, having participated in the development and implementation of countless programmatic and legislative initiatives over that period. In 2012, he was appointed First Deputy Chief Administrative Judge, the second-ranking administrative official in the court system. In that role, he assisted the Chief Judge and the Chief Administrative Judge in all aspects of the administration and operation of the Unified Court System, working with courts throughout the state to develop programs and strategies to address case delays, enhance case processing efficiency and otherwise improve the administration of justice. He also supervised the court system’s Office of Policy and Planning, which oversees the state’s problem-solving and specialized courts.

Prior to his appointment as First Deputy Chief Administrative Judge, he served from 2004 to 2011 as Administrative Director of the Office of Court Administration (OCA), responsible for day-to-day management of that office. He previously served from 1998 to 2003 as Special Counsel to the Chief Administrative Judge and from 1991 to 1997 as the OCA’s Deputy Counsel for Criminal Justice. Before joining the court system, he was a senior supervising attorney with the Legal Aid Society, in private practice and a law clerk to U.S. District Judge Thomas C. Platt.

Judge Marks is the editor and co-author of a leading treatise on New York Criminal Procedure Law, and the author of numerous government reports and several law review articles. He has also been an adjunct professor at Brooklyn Law School and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice graduate program. He graduated, with honors, from the State University of New York at Albany and Cornell Law School, where he was also an editor of the law review.

In 2009, he was appointed to the Court of Claims bench by then-Governor David Paterson; he was re-appointed to that position earlier this year by Governor Andrew Cuomo. Over the last several years, Judge Marks has handled an active caseload in the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court, New York County, and will continue to serve in that role along with his new duties as Chief Administrative Judge.

Judge Marks added, “It has been a privilege for me to work closely with Chief Administrative Judge Prudenti over the past four years. The New York Judiciary owes her a great debt of gratitude for her tireless work on behalf of the court system and the citizens of this state. While she will be sorely missed in the courts, I know that she will be a tremendous asset in her new role at Hofstra University’s School of Law. I wish her the very best and every continued success.”

Marks is a respected guy and he has seen firsthand how OCA corruption went from worse to the current state of hell. He's also been around the federal system, unlike Silver and Lippman's hacks who only deal with the feds after a federal indictment.

Marks saw how Shelly corrupted the process and got Lippman in as AD1 PJ and then Chief Judge.

Prudenti was smart to leave now. She was a product of inside lawlessness (her father was a Long Island Surrogate's Court Judge) and its never been in her blood to do the right thing. Prudent is responsible for a lot of damage.

Judge Marks can do a lot of OCA fixing up. And more after Lippman is forced out.

Speaking of Silver hacks one most recently made news headlines for his suspicious involvement in a take down.

A cleaning of the House of Justice, in New York courts, is long overdue.

I don't know? This guy is part of the "Injustice" system! What does Prudenti know? Think her "Godfather" sat her down gave her the word - leave and you get a free pass - stay and you go to Jail - She didn't leave on her own! Who believes that?

Was exposed to Judge Mark's act this past week at the Commission Hearings (on whatever you want to say) on Vesey Street! I watched him and saw his soul! He is an arrogant clerk and that' s the way he acted and treated people who were bring truth to power and he didn't like it!

Is judge Lawrence Marks Manhattan Supreme Court related to Michael Marks Esq (fix it Manhattan Supreme Court clerk--court attorney)????? This would be a very interesting connection trust me!

I was at the Attorney Disciplinary so-called Public Hearing on 8/11 and it was a bad joke. Most of the people that were allowed to speak were attorneys so this everyone knows what this was all about. More of the big cover up and slight of hand. Judge Marks showed his true colors and they weren't good. Wonder who his Rabbi is?

Judge Marks, all Judges, attorneys and clerks et al. should have to submit to drug testing on a monthly basis! Why not? Truck drivers, Bus drivers and many others who deal with peoples live have to so! So why are Judges, attorneys and clerks et al. getting a free pass and not having to do the same! It's only right! Who do they think they are, something special!?

Saw Judge Mark's act at the hearing on August 8th, his actions reminded me of Karl Marks! This guy is a stiff!

Judge Mark's follows in a long line of Chief Administrate NYS Judges - It seems like yesterday that Jonathan Lippman filled the position which seemed like forever - a disaster! But believe it or not there was a bigger disaster in the person of E.Leo Milonas - Judges actually hated him! That tells you all you need to know!

I can't believe it! Our own Janet D (Westchester Co. DA) has been nominated by Gov Guido to take Lippman's slot as head Judge! Janet has a lot to keep under wraps so the hearing should be interesting! Her husband's is a piece of work also, he was at Davis Polk W before he left the building.

Hey, Gov Andy wants the dynamic duo Janet D and Marks two more Silver hacks

Ask Janet D if she ever lost anything like her badge? Interesting question huh?

Hey, in case anybody cares this guy Marks is a bonehead, yet another empty suit to cover-up the corruption

The NYS Institute for Justice had a hearing in White Plains this morning (10/16/15) and both Lippman and Marks were in attendance. Lippman should receive an Oscar for his performance and how he lead the witnesses in testimony. The whole thing was a "Scam" hearing to extract more money from the 1%.

Anonymous said...

No, this crowd doesn't want to extract more money from the 1% they want to extract money from the 99%! It's called rob the poor and then tell them that they are helping them!

Marks is another empty suit, no more no less

Big bad Shelly Silver is going on trial shortly - "How Sweet It Is!" We'll see if any of the Judges names turn up in the testimony and here's hopping they do! What a great time to clean out the Judiciary closet once and for all! Someone can make their bones on this one!

Does anyone think the Larry (Karl) Mark's name just might turn up at the Silver trial? What's the morning line?

Will "Karl" Marks testify at Shelly's Trial?

Where's the Petition to Impeach Marks who maybe related to Shelly Silver!

Shelly Silver's trail is starting - Justice is very slow but maybe it will arrive in time!

Larry the schmuck was at Shelly's trial - wonder if there is some family relationship?

Shelly says "what corruption?" since everyone is doing it it's not corruption it's just business! How can anyone argue with that?

Closing all the alleged "Law Schools" and that will stop the creation of a good number of criminals... after why should the have a license to steal?

Shelly is being fitted his prison garb and the Skellos crew are next - so who then - is Andy Boy the next in dock? Then the Judges et al.

Once upon a time there were "three (3) men in a room" now with the "Skelos" convictions there will be "three (3) men in a cell" - "Silver, Skelos #1 and Skelos #2"

What was the size of Larry Mark's contribution to Shelly Silver?

First, there was Shelly Silver, then the Skelos dynamic "Duo" and will Gov Andy be the next? Stay tuned to see if a certain US Attorney bring Gov Andy a bitter pill! And who and what will it be after Gov Andy - Next? The Blog is long in the tooth someone should really update it!
