Public school students in New York City, the nation's largest school system, are not receiving a "sound basic education" as required by the state constitution, the Court of Appeals ruled Thursday. "Tens of thousands of students are placed in overcrowded classrooms taught by unqualified teachers and provided with inadequate facilities and equipment," the state's highest court said. "The number of students in these straits is large enough to represent a systematic failure."

New Zealand's America's Cup legal team fielded a barrage of sharp queries from New York's highest court Thursday, while rival San Diego slid smoothly through the final court session of a two-year battle for yachting's grand prize.

The withdrawal of New York Gov. Mario M. Cuomo as a candidate for the U.S. Supreme Court has increased the chances that President Clinton will fill the post from a group of liberal-to-moderate jurists who likely would face little public opposition, sources said. The group includes federal judges Amalya L. Kearse, Richard Arnold, Stephanie Seymour and Patricia M. Wald and New York state appeals court Judge Judith S.

New York Gov. David A. Paterson exercised poor judgment but committed no apparent crime when he entered the fray involving a woman who had accused one of his top aides of domestic violence, a retired judge appointed to investigate the governor's role in the case concluded Wednesday. In a 57-page report, the former chief judge of the state's Court of Appeals, Judith S. Kaye, said testimony from more than 30 witnesses suggested that the only person who might be liable to face charges related to the alleged abuse incident last fall is the aide, David Johnson, who has denied wrongdoing.

The gay-marriage movement suffered two major defeats on the state level Thursday, as Georgia's Supreme Court upheld an amendment banning the unions, and New York's highest court ruled that its state constitution did not grant same-sex couples the right to wed. Gay-marriage advocates found some solace that the New York ruling gave legislators the option of passing a state law allowing same-sex marriage.
