In SDNY Next Chief Judge Slated To Be Laura Taylor Swain Current CJ McMahon Confirms

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURT, Feb 2, 3:20 pm –  Now at the it hoped to be the tail end of the COVID pandemic and shut-downs including of the courts, there is slated to be a new Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York: Judge Laura Taylor Swain.  

 Inner City Press has surmised this from a proceeding before Judge Swain during the pandemic.

But it was confirmed on the afternoon of February 2 during a criminal proceeding before sitting Chief Judge Colleen McMahan, who has steered what's called the Mother Court through the many months of social distancing and mostly virtual proceedings. 

   During the February 2 proceeding, Chief Judge McMahon joked that she and Judge Swain are engaged in a smooth transfer of power (the comparison to recent events in Washington was brought up by defense counsel).  

 Judge McMahon also commented on the sometimes break-downs of various platforms used, from CourtCall to Skype, opining that Zoom works better. While that may be true, it was not Inner City Press' experience during a series of DC insurrection detention hearings held on February 1 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada.   

 Inner City Press has covered numerous cases before both Chief Judge McMahon and future Chief Judge Swain, who has been presiding over, the Puerto Rico bankrupcy case(s). In June, Inner City Press briefly interviewed Chief Judge McMahon about the SDNY Court's responses to the issues of COVID-19, here. We will have more on this.
