New Jersey Supreme Court Justice-designate Fabiana Pierre-Louis has picked up the strong support of her hometown assemblywoman, Carol Murphy.  Both are residents of Mount Laurel.

Gov. Phil Murphy will announce his nomination of Pierre-Louis to replace Walter Timpone on the New Jersey Supreme Court at 10:15 AM.

“This is truly a historic day and I commend Governor Murphy for his decision to nominate Fabiana Pierre-Louis as the first African-American woman to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court. Fabiana Pierre-Louis has been a modern day trailblazer cracking glass ceilings as a woman of color rising through the ranks of the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey.”

Murphy noted that Pierre-Louis “became the first woman of color to serve as Assistant U.S. Attorney and the Attorney-in-Charge of the Camden Branch and Trenton Branch.”

“It is a point of great pride that Fabiana Pierre-Louis is a resident of Mount Laurel, and at this critical time in our nation’s history appointing this highly qualified woman of color is certainly a great choice,” she said. “Fabiana Pierre-Louis will be an exemplary Supreme Court Justice and I’m ecstatic about this nomination.”

State Sen. Troy Singleton (D-Delran), who also represents Mount Laurel, praised Pierre-Louis this morning.
