Justices D’Emic, Chun appointed to administrative posts in Brooklyn | Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Chief Administrative Judge A. Gail Prudenti has announced the appointments of Hon. Matthew D’Emic as administrative judge for criminal matters in state Supreme Court, Kings County, and Hon. Danny Chun as Kings County’s deputy administrative judge for Criminal Matters.
AABANY congratulates Hon. Danny Chun on his appointment by Chief Administrative Judge Gail Prudenti to the position of Deputy Administrative Judge for Criminal Matters in Kings County. The appointment was approved by Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman and was made in consultation with Presiding Justice Randall Eng of the Second Department.
From the article:
Justice Chun’s judicial career began in 1999, upon his appointment to New York City Criminal Court, Kings County. He was designated an acting Supreme Court justice in 2004 and was temporarily assigned to the Kings County Family Court bench. In 2009, he was reappointed to New York City Criminal Court.
Judge Chun previously served as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan, where over his 12-year tenure he took on a variety of assignments, including the role of Criminal Court supervisor, with oversight for the office’s junior prosecutors. Judge Chun lectures on the subject of criminal law and taught classes in U.S. criminal procedure and trial advocacy as an adjunct professor at Yonsei University School of Law in Seoul, South Korea. He earned his undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University and his Juris Doctor from Fordham University School of Law.
Please join AABANY in congratulating Hon. Danny Chun on this major milestone in his judicial career.
