A Conference Secretary Fail?
Several years ago, the Council turned down many attempts by people to get a ruling by the Council because the annual conference secretaries were failing to forward the proper documentation. A suggestion to the Secretary of the Judicial Council that he check that when everything was due rather than when the Council met might get more cases handled rather than deferred.
The suggestion appeared to have paid off in recent years. There have been few deferrals because of the failures to get the paper work in on time.
With the change of Secretaries for the Council, it is possible that this request for Upper New York Annual Conference “fell through the cracks.”
Whatever happened, we will hopefully see the case properly documented so it can be decided upon this coming session of the Council.
