Superior Court Judge Deborah Gramiccioni has submitted her resignation from the bench, according to Peter McAleer, a spokesman for the New Jersey Administrative Office of the Courts.
Gramiccioni will depart on May 25.
The New Jersey Globe first reported on Friday that Gramiccioni and her husband, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni, will leave their current posts to form a new law firm.
His resignation as prosecutor is effective June 1.
A former deputy chief of staff to Gov. Chris Christie, Gramiccioni has been a judge since January 2017. She had served just a little more than four years of her seven-year term.
Nominated by Christie at age 45, Gramiccioni could potentially have served on the bench for 25 years.
She had been assigned to Family Court in Ocean County in order to obviate any potential conflict of interest with her husband’s role as prosecutor.
