The National Labor Relations Board has announced the appointment of two new administrative law judges, David Goldman and Mindy Landow. Judges Goldman and Landow transferred to the Board from similar positions with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Their appointments bring the number of judges in the Boardís Division of Judges to 50 nationwide.
The Division of Judges, which has offices in Washington, D.C., New York City, San Francisco and Atlanta, is responsible for docketing unfair labor practice cases brought by the Board´s General Counsel on charges filed by unions, employers and individual employees. The Judges Division disposes of those cases, either by settlement or by conducting trials and issuing initial decisions, which may then be appealed to the five-member Board and thereafter to an appropriate U. S. Court of Appeals.
Before Judge Goldman became a judge at SSA in 2004, he worked as an attorney in the NLRB´s Appellate Court Branch and served for 16 years as an Assistant and Associate General Counsel for the United Steelworkers of America. He received his B.A. degree from the University of North Carolina in 1983 and his J.D. degree from Columbia University in 1988.
Judge Landow was named a judge with the SSA in 2004. Previously, she served as a trial attorney in the NLRB´s Manhattan office (Region 2) for 15 years, and she was in the private practice of law in New York City. Judge Landow received her B.A. degree from the State University of New York in Binghamton in 1973 and her J.D. degree from New York University in 1987.
Judge Goldman will take his assignments from the Washington office of Judges, while Judge Landow will be based in New York.
