A group of mostly former New Jersey Supreme Court Justices were named today to a panel to advise Gov. Phil Murphy on judicial appointments.
Murphy has picked former Chief Justice James Zazzali to chair the Judicial Advisory Panel, and named former Chief Justice Deborah Poritz, former Justices John Wallace, Virginia Long and Stewart Pollock, former Superior Court Judge Peter Doyne, and incoming state Bar Association president John Keefe to serve on it.
“I am honored to select a panel of respected and experienced former judges and attorneys that will ensure that the Judiciary is comprised of the highest caliber and most qualified attorneys,” said Murphy. “I look forward to working with the members of the advisory panel and I am confident we will lead New Jersey towards enhancing the fairness and effectiveness of our justice system.”
