The Trials of Becoming a New York Judge

It’s a wet and gloomy morning in Abingdon Square. The stalls of the greenmarket are quieter than usual. There’s a notable absence of tourists. 

But bad weather doesn’t deter the intrepid volunteers of the Village Independent Democrats (VID). Its members are out among their fellow Villagers promoting the judicial candidacy of Lauren Esposito, the club’s choice for New York State Civil Court in the June 27th Democratic primary.
