"Our courts must operate with the transparency, accountability, and integrity becoming of a world-class judiciary. This newly-announced order from Chief Administrative Judge Joseph Zayas makes serious progress by ending the practice of Office of Court Administration security details for former judges, relieving the burden on taxpayers while creating a thoughtful system to address serious security issues as they arise.
