Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman told an audience at Yale Law School on March 2 that he is working with the Legislature to establish caseload caps outside of New York City. Judge Lippman said the caseload caps being implemented in New York City represent a “major step” toward “ensuring a level playing field.” Under legislation enacted in 2009, public defender caseloads in New York City will be limited to 400 misdemeanors or 150 felonies per attorney, per year. The cap is being phased in and must be in place entirely by April 1, 2014.
