  New York Court of Appeals - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In New York, unlike most other states of the U.S., the court designated as the "Supreme Court" is the trial court rather than the highest court of the state; this nomenclature sometimes leads to confusion.
During the late 20th century, the most famous judge on the Court of Appeals was Chief Judge Sol Wachtler, who was elected to the court in 1972 and appointed Chief Judge in 1985.
The court is also notable for being one of only two states to declare the death penalty statute unconstitutional, which the court did in the case of People v.

 Gay News From 365Gay.com
In lower courts judges in three of the cases upheld the current ban on same-sex marriage.
In the fourth, New York City judge Doris Ling-Cohan ruled that the New York State Constitution guarantees basic freedoms to lesbian and gay people, and that those rights are violated when same-sex couples are not allowed to marry.
The court also said that there are "at least two grounds that rationally support the limitation on marriage that the Legislature has enacted." Two of those, the ruling said, involve children.

 WRF | New York Court of Appeals Upholds 'No Prejudice' Rule
In its opinion, the court cited to New York's long-standing adherence to the rule that a failure on the part of a policyholder to provide timely notice of an occurrence vitiates coverage, and that no showing of prejudice on the part of the insurer is required.
The court emphasized that in the present case, the first notice of claim received by the insurer was belated notice of the underlying lawsuit.
In this context, the Court of Appeals held that, before it could disclaim coverage due to the policyholder's late notice of a SUM claim, the insurance carrier, which had received timely notice of the underlying accident, would be required to show prejudice.

New York's highest court closed out the millennium with an important ruling that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) cannot be held liable for their subscribers' defamatory e-mails or postings to electronic bulletin boards.
The New York Court of Appeals decision affirmed the grant of summary judgment for Prodigy, strictly on the grounds that an ISP such as Prodigy is entitled to a qualified privilege from liability.
However, New York's Court of Appeals refused to rule on Prodigy's claim that it was protected by the potentially broader and clearer immunity provision arguably contained in section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA).

The Court of Appeals in a 4-2 decision said New York's marriage law is constitutional and clearly limits marriage to between a man and a woman.
The New York ruling is part of an evolving mosaic on the volatile issue nationwide.
The New York decision said lawmakers have a legitimate interest in protecting children by limiting marriage to heterosexual couples and that the law does not deny homosexual couples any "fundamental right" since same-sex marriages are not "deeply rooted in the nation's history and tradition."

 New York Court of Appeals Refuses to Recognize Same-Sex Marriage | code0range.net   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The New York State Court of Appeals refused to recognize same-sex marriage in an order issued on Thursday, deciding that the issue should be addressed by the Legislature.
What’s noteworthy about the New York decision, however, is that it became the second ruling by a state high court to assert a startling rationale for prohibiting same-sex marriage — that straight couples may be less stable parents than their gay counterparts and consequently require the benefits of marriage to assist them.
The critical question, expressed in a plurality opinion by three members of the New York court, is whether a “rational legislature” could decide that the benefits of marriage should be granted to opposite-sex couples but not to same-sex couples.

 UCLA Law Experts Available to Discuss Recent New York Court of Appeals Ruling Upholding the State’s Ban on Same-Sex ...
First, the Court found that the legislature could determine that marriage promotes stability and permanence in relationships, that this stability benefits children, and that since heterosexual couples are more likely to have children, the legislature could reasonably focus the resources of marriage on them.
Second, the Court found that the legislature could rationally believe, based on "intuition and experience," that it is better for children to grow up with one mother and one father as role models.
First, in a study released in September 2005, Same-Sex Couples And Same-Sex Couples Raising Children In New York: Data From Census 2000 (../williamsinstitute/publications/NewYorkCouplesReport.pdf) the Williams Institute found that 28% of the 46,490 same-sex couples in the state of New York are raising children—more than 26,000 children under age 18.

We hold that the New York Constitution does not compel recognition of marriages between members of the same sex.
Despite the assertion of the New York Court of Appeals that “a child benefits from having before his or her eyes, every day, living models of what both a man and a woman are like,” this is one area where that is not the case.
The New Jersey ruling is vastly superior to the New York one, which was largely rooted in a worldview that defined marriage by children and a mother and father as the best pair to raise them.

 People For the American Way - New York’s Highest Court Allows Continued Marriage Discrimination
The New York Court of Appeals, the state's highest court, held today in a 4-2 ruling that the “New York Constitution does not compel recognition of marriages between members of the same sex.
“In allowing the state of New York to continue to discriminate against gay and lesbian couples, the state Court of Appeals abdicated its responsibility to uphold the due process and equal protection clauses of the state Constitution.
Instead, the Court relied on tired assumptions about parenting and procreation in determining that gay and lesbian New Yorkers can properly be considered second-class citizens when it comes to marriage and denied the important protections for their families that only marriage provides.

 PrideSource: Creep of the Week: The New York Court of Appeals
Such was the twisted logic of New York Court of Appeals, the state's highest court, when they issued their 4-2 decision July 6 against letting same-sex couples get married.
Saying that heterosexual relationships are "all too often casual or temporary," the court concludes that straight folks need the marriage carrot dangled in front of them as an incentive to stick together lest their children become bastards.
If their parents, hypothetically, were to use the logic of the NY court, they would say to Gallant, "We're sorry, son, but we're writing you out of our will and leaving everything to Goofus, even though he blows all his cash on strippers and coke.
