ECBA Adopts Resolution Concerning the Judicial Appointment Process
March 16, 2016. Newark, NJ. The Essex County Bar Association (“ECBA”),in response to the reported stalemate over judicial appointments in New Jersey, passed a resolution to express its support of an evaluation of judges and judicial candidates by the Governor and Senate that is studious, fair and nonpartisan, based solely on whether the judge or candidate has demonstrated the intellectual ability, integrity, and judicial demeanor to serve in judicial office, without regard to philosophical differences and with due respect for judicial independence.
For the reasons set forth at length in its Resolution, the ECBA respectfully urged the Executive and Legislative branches to take all steps necessary to address the upcoming reappointments and all future judicial appointments.
