Flink Smith Attends DRI of NENY Holiday Dinner and Christopher Guetti Elected to Second Term as President of DRI of NENY


The Defense Research Institute of Northeastern New York held its annual Holiday Dinner this year at the Century House in Latham, New York. Insurance company representatives, investigators, and defense counsel ranging from areas in the North Country down to Poughkeepsie, New York, were in attendance.

Presenting at the dinner, Professor Michael Hutter, a faculty member at Albany Law School of Union University since 1976, Special Counsel to an Albany area law firm, and a member of the Commission on Judicial Nomination, which selects a list of nominees from which the Governor must choose appointments to the Court of Appeals, reviewed Court of Appeals decisions from the past year, as well as provided his insights into the workings of New York’s highest Court.

In addition, in what appears to be an unprecedented event for the DRI of NENY, Christopher Guetti was elected President of the group for a second term.

Thank you Professor Hutter and congratulations Chris!
