Christopher Gets Dems Supreme Court Nod

Rockland Family Court Judge Linda Christopher is one of the four jurists who has received the Democratic Party line for state Supreme Court justice in the November election.

Also nominated by Democrats on Tuesday in White Plains were state Supreme Court Justice J. Emmett Murphy of Westchester, Westchester County Family Court Justice Colleen Duffy and Supreme Court Justice Lawrence H. Ecker.

Christopher, a former Nyack village attorney and family practice attorney, won election to a 10-year term on Family Court in 2005. She has been the lead judge of Rockland Integrated Domestic Violence Court. She missed out on the nomination last year for Supreme Court.
