NY lawmakers approve adding 25 family court judges

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- While the current state budget funds 20 more family court judges statewide, intended to help ease crowded dockets, legislators have approved 25 new judgeships.

Most would take office next year, following upstate elections in November.

The legislation, if signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, would add nine more judges in New York City, where they are appointed.

Others would be elected this fall in Albany, Broome, Chautauqua, Franklin, Nassau, Oneida, Oswego, Schenectady, Suffolk, Ulster and Westchester counties and take office Jan. 1.

Others would be elected next year and seated in 2016 in Delaware, Dutchess, Erie, Monroe, and Warren counties.
