Chief Judge Margaret Cangilos-Ruiz, Judge Robert E. Littlefield and Judge Diane Davis thank the attorneys and student practitioners listed below for their public service to parties in need of representation in the bankruptcy court. Six attorneys performed or supervised pro bono services in three or more cases, namely: M. Lettie Dickerson (3); Marc S. Ehrlich (4); Gregory L. Germain (14); Michael Jude O'Connor (10); Michael Toomey (4); and L. David Zube (3).
Chief Judge Cangilos-Ruiz reached out to the Presidents of the Albany, Onondaga, Oneida and Broome County Bar Associations asking their members to support the Second Circuit Court of Appeal's Civic Education and Public Engagement outreach through presenting financial literacy programs to local middle and secondary schools and other community organizations. The Board of Judges has determined that attorneys who commit to this valuable cause will be recognized in the Bankruptcy Court's Quarterly Honor Roll of Pro Bono Providers.
