Legislation is in the works to protect the personal information of state judges, State Sen. Joseph Lagana (D-Paramus) told the New Jersey Globe.
Lagana said he’s working with Assemblyman Christopher Tully (D-Bergenfield) and Assemblywoman Lisa Swain (D-Fair Lawn) to review how other states safeguard their judiciary.
Two weeks after her young son was murdered in her home by an attorney holding an apparent grudge against her, U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas today called for limits on access to personal information about judges.
“Judges need to be protected,” Lagana said. “They are making decisions each and every day that effect peoples lives. Sometimes they become targets.”
Lagana said it was imperative that personal information about judges be protected.
