Part 3a [Correction]--NY Court of Appeals: The List for the Graffeo Seat

As now added to the previous post, Part 3, the Albany County Bar Association changed its rating of Preeta D. Bansal upon appeal from "Not Qualified" to "Qualified." As reported by Joel Stashenko in the New York Law Journal:
The Albany County Bar Association's list...initially found nominee Preeta Bansal to be "not qualified." But the group said its executive committee hear an appeal of the rating made by its Court of Appeals Judicial Screening Committee and changed the assessment of Bansal to "qualified."
Albany County Bar Association President Peter Crummey did not return a call seeking an explanation for the group's change of heart.
Thanks to several readers of New York Court Watcher for providing that update.
