Greenstein applauds Murphy Supreme Court pick

Adding woman of color to high court a ‘great idea,’ senator says

By Nikita Biryukov, June 05 2020 11:11 am

State Sen. Linda Greenstein has a good initial impression of Fabiana Pierre-Louis.

“I know next to nothing about the person,” she said, “but based on the fact that it’s a woman and a woman of color, I think it’s a great idea.”

Pierre Louis, whose nomination Gov. Phil Murphy announced Friday, would become the first black woman to ever serve on the state’s highest court if confirmed.

Currently, the court is composed of four white men, two white women and one Latino man.

“Having more diversity on there, having a black woman, is just perfect, so I give her a big plus on that part of things,” Greenstein said. “The rest of it, I don’t know because I haven’t seen her resume or anything else.”
