Monmouth County Democratic Chairman David Brown is all in on Gov. Phil Murphy’s new Supreme Court nominee.

“I am proud to support Governor Murphy’s nomination, Fabiana Pierre-Louis. It is long overdue to have a Black woman on the New Jersey Supreme Court,” Brown said Thursday. “Fabiana’s resume speaks for itself — with ample experience across the state. Fabiana is a trailblazer and will bring a new perspective to our justice system.”

If confirmed, Pierre-Louis, a former federal prosecutor who is now a partner at a partner at Montgomery McCracken, would be the first black woman to serve on New Jersey’s high court.

She’d replace Walter Timpone, who will reach the mandatory retirement age of 70 on November 10.

“It is incredibly important for our government to reflect our state’s diversity. We need to continue to break down the barriers for Black Americans,” Brown said. “I strongly urge the NJ Senate to confirm Fabiana Pierre-Louis as our first Black woman on the Supreme Court.”
