Housing Court judges sought.

David Rosenberg, the chairperson of the Advisory Council for the Housing Part of the Civil Court of the City of New York, has announced that the Advisory Council has begun the process of soliciting applications for Housing Court Judge positions which will become available during 1994.

In order to encourage interest in applying, and to provide sufficient time for a full review of the applications prior to January 1995, applications will be accepted from April 1, 1994 to July 1, 1994. The present salary for Housing Court Judge is $88,150 per year, but is due to increase by the date of appointment to $91,200.

Housing Court Judges, who are appointed for a five-year term, are required to have been admitted to the Bar of the State of New York for at least five years, two of which must have been in active practice. In addition, they must be qualified by training, interest, experience and judicial temperament and knowledge of federal, state and local housing laws and programs.

Under the direction of Civil Court Administrative Judge Jacqueline W. Silbermann, the 35 Housing Judges preside over non-injury trials and other dispositions in the Housing Part of Civil Court of the City of New York. The proceedings relate to housing conditions and disputes between owners and tenants, including defaults in the payment of rent and defaults by either party on other obligations under a lease, as well as the enforcement of all applicable state and local laws, rules and regulations applicable to housing accommodations in the City of New York. They include proceedings commenced by owners, tenants or government agencies charged with the responsibility of maintaining housing conditions.

Rosenberg said that persons interested in applying to become Housing Court Judges should obtain a questionnaire by writing or appearing in person at the Office of Administrative Judge Jacqueline W. Silbermann, Civil Court of the City of New York, Room 1240, 111 Centre Street, New York, N.Y. 10013. Since July 1, 1994 has been established as the cut-off date for submission of such applications, Rosenberg encourages all applicants to obtain, complete and submit the questionnaire as soon as possible.
