ABSTRACT
The article explores some of the judicial principles and philosophies of Associate Judge Victoria A. Graffeo of the New York Court of Appeals. According to the article, Graffeo's judicial philosophy on the high court is somewhat conservative given that her voting record has been consistently pro-government and pro-prosecution. She had written few dissenting opinions but is steadfast in her beliefs and will not hesitate to voice discontent. She is the third woman to serve on the New York high court.
