New York State Bar Association President David P. Miranda has created a committee to examine the state Constitution. Voters in New York in 2017 will decide whether to have a constitutional convention to review the state’s governing documents.
Miranda has appointed Henry M. Greenberg (Greenberg Traurig) as chair of the Committee on the New York State Constitution. Greenberg has vast government and public law experience. Among the public sector posts he has held, Greenberg served as counsel to the New York State Attorney General (2007 to 2010); general counsel for the state Department of Health (1995 to 2000); assistant U.S. attorney for the Northern District of New York (1990 to 1995); and law clerk to then-Judge (later Chief Judge) Judith S. Kaye of the state Court of Appeals (1988 to 1990). Currently, he is counsel to the Commission on Judicial Nomination, which nominates New York Court of Appeals judges.
