May signals another month-long celebration for Common Threads of Justice: Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month!
We are kicking off this new celebration with Get to Know Hon. Randall T. Eng, the first Asian-American jurist to serve as Presiding Justice in New York State and our Trustee. This interview chronicles Justice Eng’s early years to his interest in the law to his judicial career. He also reflects on discrimination and stereotypes he has faced as a Chinese-American. The interview was recorded in March 2017. At that time, Judge Eng was then Presiding Justice at the Appellate Division Second Department and the interview took place in his chambers.
We thank Justice Eng for sharing his story with us.
