Murphy reappoints Norcross lawyer

Bill Tambussi nominated for another term on Rutgers Board of Governors

By David Wildstein, January 30 2020 10:27 am

Gov. Phil Murphy has nominated George Norcross’s personal attorney for another term on the Rutgers University Board of Governors.

William Tambussi has been representing Norcross for 35 years, including his litigation against the Murphy administration on issues involving the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.  He has been the counsel to the Camden County Democratic Committee since 1989.

Last year, attorneys for the governor complained that Tambussi sent document preservation records directly to the home of Murphy and some of his top aides.

Gov. Chris Christie appointed Tambussi to the Rutgers post in 2014.

Murphy also nominated Amy Towers, a philanthropist who has donated millions to Rutgers’ athletic program.  In 2015, her husband, hedge fund manager Larry Robbins, tweeted the Twitter handles of three Rutgers prospects in possible violation to NCAA rules that ban sports boosters from having any contact with potential recruits.  Rutgers reported the incident to the NCAA.
