Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani today reappointed Judge Betty E. Stanton to the Family Court of the City of New York in Kings County.
"Family Court judges are charged with a special responsibility: to protect and ensure the safety of children," Mayor Giuliani said. "Since her appointment to the Family Court in 1991, Judge Staton has demonstrated her commitment to protecting the lives of the most vulnerable New Yorkers. I am confident that Judge Staton will continue to prove herself deserving of the trust the public has vested in her."
In 1991, Betty E. Staton was appointed to the bench, as Family Court Judge
of the City of New York, assigned to Kings County. Judge Staton began practicing
law as a staff attorney for the Bedford Stuyvesant Community Legal Services
Corporation. After serving almost two years as an attorney at the State Liquor
Authority, Judge Staton returned to the Bedford Stuyvesant Community Legal Services
Corporation as Deputy Director in 1984. From 1987 to 1991 Judge Staton was in
private practice, as a member of the law firm of Boyd, Staton and Cave in Brooklyn.
Judge Staton has been very active in the bar, serving on numerous committees
as a member of national and local bar associations. Some of these organizations
include the Association of Black Women Attorneys, the Judges Leadership Council
and the Black Community Crusade for Children. In addition, Judge Staton has
been adjunct lecturer at New York City Technical College since 1990. A graduate
of Brooklyn College, Judge Staton received her law degree from New York University
Law School in 1979.
