Court of Appeals Convenes in Kingston, New York


The Court of Appeals traveled south to Kingston, New York, to hold session today at the Ulster County Courthouse where, among other historic events, renowned abolitionist Sojourner Truth successfully argued an 1828 case that saved her son from being sold into slavery. The Court of Appeals’ visit, one of a series of events marking the 200-year anniversary of the rebuilding of the historic Kingston courthouse, aims to provide students and others from Ulster County and nearby the opportunity to get a close-up view of New York’s highest court at work.
