Speaker Coughlin on Confirmation of State Supreme Court Justice Fabiana Pierre-Louis

(TRENTON) – Following the State Senate’s confirmation of Fabiana Pierre-Louis Thursday as a State Supreme Court Justice, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement:
“The confirmation of Fabiana Pierre-Louis as New Jersey’s first female African-American State Supreme Court Justice is historic. Her reputation as a fair and impartial prosecutor is hard-earned and well-deserved.
“I am confident Ms. Pierre-Louis’ demonstrated intellect and legal acumen will be tremendous assets for our state’s highest court. She brings vital diversity in both age and gender. Above all, her integrity and character are unquestionable.
“There will be a litany of crucially important issues that will be brought before the court in the coming years. I have no doubt that Justice Pierre-Louis and the attributes she brings to the court will serve the residents of our state well in the decades to come.”
