Statement from Governor Andrew Cuomo
"I am deeply saddened by the passing of former Court of Appeals Judge George Bundy Smith.
"From his days as a freedom rider, to serving as a jurist on the state trial courts, to his tenure on the state's highest court, where he wrote the decision outlawing the death penalty in this state, Judge Bundy Smith lived a life of distinction and public service.
"He was a giant who left a mark on New York, and we are all the better for it.
"My father was proud to appoint Judge Bundy Smith to the Court of Appeals. I was proud to know him, and was honored he presided over my swearing in as Attorney General. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest condolences to his loved ones, friends and colleagues in the legal profession."
