Congratulations to the Honorable Doris Ling-Cohan Who Was Nominated to Run on the Democratic Ticket for Supreme Court

Earlier Korean American Lawyers Association of Greater New York (KALAGNY) expressed its disappointment with a September 1, 2016 New York Post article reporting on the alleged results of a judicial screening panel.  The article reported that Justice Doris Ling-Cohan had not been approved to run on the Democratic ticket for New York Supreme Court.  KALAGNY stood behind Justice Doris Ling-Cohan and urged the Democratic Party to  re-form a new panel to re-evaluate the Justice’s qualifications for serving on the Court.  Even though the Manhattan Democrats' Judiciary Committee declined to endorse an amended report issued by the screening panel, Justice Ling Cohan was nominated to run on the Democratic ticket.  We thank the Manhattan Democrats, Hon. Keith Wright, and the screening panel for their service.

Honoring the Survivors & Breaking News: Korea and Japan Settle Dispute 

Over Comfort Women Issue

                        The Glendale Comfort Women Peace Monument


Korea and Japan have resolved their dispute over the "Comfort Women" issue.   As part of the resolution, Japan offered a public apology and a one-billion yen ($8.3 million) compensation to Korean women who were forced to work in Japanese brothels during WWII.  Read more here and here.  

KALAGNY has played an integral part in the ongoing open discussion about this atrocity faced by the "Comfort Women." We hope to educate our members and our community  so as to prevent any like incidents from arising in the future.
