This work examines the voting of the individual judges ofNew York's highest court, as well as the decisions of thecourt itself in divided public law cases from 1987-2001.However, its purpose is not to outline the law of New York,but rather to provide insight into how and why the judges,individually and collectively, vote and decide casesinvolving fundamental questions of right, liberty, andgovernment protected entitlement. In this way, it providesan ideological and jurisprudential profile of the court'smembers and how they and the court have either remainedconsistent or have changed over the course of 15 years --from the last several years of the Chief Judge Wachtler erathrough the current era under Chief Judge Kaye.
