New York Court of Appeals Holds Governor Can Appoint Lieutenant Governor

The New York Court of Appeals handed down a decision this morning holding that Governor David Paterson had the constitutional authority to appoint a lieutenant governor. The victory is a big one for Governor Paterson--particularly since the Court could have, as a practical matter, reached the same conclusion by disposing of the case for lack of standing.

Check out the decision here.
