According to the New York Law Journal, a number of judges have applied for the position of Chief Judge of the NY Court of Appeals.  Among those applying include Judges Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick and Eugene F. Pigott Jr. of the Court of Appeals, Presiding Justice Jonathan Lippman, of the Appellate Division, First Department, Justice Steven W. Fisher of the Second Department; and Supreme Court Justice Fern A. Fisher, the administrative judge of the New York City Civil Court.

By law, the commission must submit the names of seven candidates to Governor David A. Paterson on Dec. 1, and the governor must nominate a new chief judge between Jan. 1 and Jan. 15, 2009, subject to confirmation by the state Senate
