Roosevelt Islanders: Paul G. Feinman Retires from the NYS Court of Appeals

New York State chief judge Janet DiFiore announced the retirement of Paul G. Feinman today, March 23rd, 2021, for health reasons. Feinman lives on Roosevelt Island, in Southtown, with partner Jay Robert Ostergaard.

The Court of Appeals is New York’s highest court, and when Governor Cuomo appointed him in June, 2013, he was the first openly gay judge serving on the court. The State Senate confirmed him promptly.
