Pressure on Cuomo is coming from All Sides. The walls are caving in. Now the Judiciary is pushing back. A State Supreme Court justice ordered the Health Department to turn over accurate nursing home death toll within 5 days. The ruling was prompted by a suit from the Empire Center for Public Policy citing the Freedom of Information Act. Finally the courts are rising to the occasion. The State Constitution provides for checks and balances. The Judiciary and Legislature are reasserting this fundamental right. The days of King Andrew’s arbitrary and unilateral rule are numbered. No less than our basic freedom and liberties are at stake. New Yorkers are breathing a collective sigh of relief.
