The Justice Forum presents our inaugural edition of “Ask a Judge.”
We are honored to have Justice Erika McDaniel Edwards from the Supreme Court of the State of New York (Manhattan Civil Term) here to answer questions. This month she responded to three questions from readers who want more insight into the mind and perspective of a member our judiciary.
The questions Justice Edwards answered were:
- Do you ever let your personal feelings affect your rulings?
- What do you do, when you know without a doubt, that you have made the wrong decision about someone?
- How do you have a crime without a victim? As in victimless crime like drug possession, prostitution or a litany of others that the government deems to be crimes against society?
