Quijano Statement on the Nomination of Michael Noriega to Serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court

Following Governor Phil Murphy’s announcement that he nominated Michael Noriega to serve as Associate Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court, Assemblywoman Quijano (D-Union) issued the following statement:

“I support Governor Murphy’s decision to nominate Michael Noriega to the New Jersey Supreme Court.  Noriega is an accomplished immigration defense lawyer, and former public defender, who has helped both documented and undocumented residents of our state. The son of immigrants himself, Noriega has spent his legal career fighting for those who chose to make New Jersey their home. I am pleased to see a Latino selected to serve on the state’s highest court, and look forward to the Senate’s confirmation process.”
