Online petitions ask that citizens express their disapproval and request that the Presidential appointment of Judge Lippman be withdrawn
Now many are arguing that his appointment by President Barack Obama should be withdrawn.
According to Expose Corrupt Courts:
"Jonathan Lippman, currently the Chief Judge of the New York State Court System, and Chief Judge of the NYS Court of Appeals, was nominated by President Barack Obama on May 23, 2012 to become a member of the 11-person Board of Directors of a little-known national organization called the State Justice Institute- a non-profit group located in Reston, Virginia.

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote on the President's nomination of Judge Lippman anytime before the next SJI Board of Directors Meeting in Reno, Nevada on Monday, September 17, 2012..."
The voting date has been extended to December 14, 2012.
Corruption and Abuse of Power: President "Misled"
A petition at We the People asks that people ask for the withdrawal of the presidential appointment of Lippman: In this piece, Lipmann is accused of fraud and concealment of fraud:
"The President nominated New York Chief Judge Lippman to the SJI, a national group committed to improving the quality of justice in our state courts.
President Obama has been grossly misled.
Lippman, protecting political supporters in NY, covered-up a fraud involving over $100,000 in stolen 9/11 donation monies (NY Times "Red Cross Quietly Settles Case of a $120,000 Theft"). He has been implicated in a well-documented $40 Million fraud, and was politically created by attorney Sheldon Silver, who is the target of criminal allegations of using public funds to cover-up sex harassment charges "Justice Blindsided" Village Voice)"
New York State Resident Blogs about Lippman 2010 Ruling
A blog post by New York state resident Rhonda Mangus took issue with Lippman's ruling in her own case in 2010. Mangus' case involved her parental rights regarding her teen age son Michael who had received death threats while attending the North Tonawanda, New York public school system.
Said Ms. Mangus in her post:
"The decision leaves in place an illegal and egregious determination of educational neglect by Niagara County Department of Social Services and New York State Office of Children and Family Services. It encourages continued abuse of power, giving ‘carte blanche’ to school authorities and social services agencies who seek to deprive parents of their right to protect their children against hate and violence at school."
