NYLPI Staff Attorney Maureen Belluscio named to Statewide Committee to Promote Access to Courts for People with Disabilities

The Committee will be led by Hon. Rosalyn H. Richter, Associate Justice of the Appellate Division, First Department, and is comprised of judges, clerks and administrators, legal services providers, and advocacy groups from across New York State.  NYLPI is excited to be a part of this Committee.  Access to justice is a fundamental right, and it cannot be achieved unless people with disabilities have equal access to courts.
