Upon Governor Murphy’s announcement today, regarding the nomination of Fabiana Pierre-Louis to the New Jersey Supreme Court, members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee Raj Mukherji (D-Hudson), chairman, Carol Murphy (D-Burlington) vice-chair, Nicholas Chiaravalloti (D-Hudson) and Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen) issued the following joint statement:
“We are in full support of this nomination. The Governor could not have made a better pick. We have no doubt that Mount Laurel resident Fabiana Pierre-Louis will be a tremendous credit as the appointment to our highest court.
“Her background, wealth of experience and diversity she would bring as the first Black woman to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court together make her the ideal choice. Her nomination is history being made for women, immigrants, and communities of color throughout New Jersey.”
