Singer: Pierre-Louis would be ‘strong addition’ to state’s high court

By Nikita Biryukov, June 24 2020 9:56 am

State Sen. Bob Singer (R-Lakewood) thinks Fabiana Pierre-Louis is a good fit for the state’s Supreme Court.

“New Jersey’s highest court has long been recognized as a national model for its fair-mindedness and independence. Based on Fabiana Pierre-Louis’ legal experience and diverse perspective, I believe that she will be a strong addition to the New Jersey Supreme Court,” Singer said. “I look to forward to her confirmation process.”

Murphy nominated Pierre-Louis, a former federal prosecutor who is now a partner at Montgomery McCracken, to replace Associate Justice Walter Timpone earlier this month.

Timpone reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70 on November 10.

If confirmed, Pierre-Louis would be the first Black woman to ever sit on New Jersey’s high court.
