Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) congratulated Noach Dear on his nomination to become Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, 2nd Judicial District. Dear, who was first elected to the bench as a judge in the Civil Court of Kings County in 2008, was appointed Acting Justice in the Supreme Court of Kings County in 2010. Tonight, Dear received the endorsement for his nomination in a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Democratic Party of Brooklyn.
“I am thrilled to congratulate Noach Dear on his nomination to Supreme Court Justice in Kings County. I have known Noach for decades and he is a long-time friend. He is a devoted public servant and a tireless community advocate, from his time as District Manager for Brooklyn Community Board #12 to his service in public office as a member of the New York City Council. For the past few years, Noach has been a highly respected judge in the lower court, gaining a well-deserved reputation for protecting consumer rights. The New York Times, in an editorial in 2012, hailed Noach’s courtroom as one that has helped restore due process to hundreds of consumers too poor or intimidated to seek justice.”
“Noach Dear has distinguished himself with his no-nonsense approach. I was proud to endorse him when he first ran for judge and tonight as well. His nomination is a victory for our community and all New Yorkers. I extend a hearty mazal tov to Noach and his family and wish him continued success in enhancing our system of justice for all New Yorkers, especially the little guy.”
