A group led by veteran Albany hand Bruce Gyory will push for the passage of amendment to the state’s constitution that would raise the retirement age of judges.

The group, Justice for All, announced today it is forming a “committ of advocates” from the law field who oppose the mandatory retirement age of 70.

The amendment would raise the retirement age for state Supreme Court and Court of Appeals judges to 80. At the crux of the argument for amendment supporters is the current retirement age of 70 was approved more than a century ago.

To that end, the group is launching a webiste, nyjusticeforall2013.com, to support the amendment.

“We’re thrilled to launch this website because the more New Yorkers know about this Constitutional Amendment; the more likely they are to support it,” said Gyory, the group’s executive director and a contributor to Capital Tonight’s “Insider” segment. “By passing Proposition 6, we will strengthen our judiciary and allow competent judges who are physically and mentally capable to continue serving our judicial system and making New York State work.”

An interesting side story on the amendment is how it could impact Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Should the amendment fail and Cuomo be re-elected to a second term, he would likely be able to replace the entire Court of Appeals with his own jurists.

The age cap amendment for judges is one of six constitutional changes voters will consider in November.

Earlier this week, a coalition backing the casino expansion proposal was formed that includes members of the business community and labor.
