GOSHEN – State Supreme Court Justice Steven Milligram has died following a bout with COVID-19, court officials confirmed. He was 66.
Milligram was elected to the state bench last fall after having served as a Monroe Town judge.
Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler said Milligram was a credit to the field of law.
“He was excellent trial lawyer, very smart man, kind, and he had a witty sense of humor. Anyone who ever litigated against him; we lost a judge, but we lost a really good man,” said Hoovler.
Milligram, a native of Yonkers, graduated from the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University in 1981.
