Press Release regarding Judge Bauman 10/14/2013

To the Editor:

The Supreme Court of New Jersey is not a political battlefield.

On December 10, 2012, Governor Chris Christie nominated Monmouth County Superior Court Presiding Judge David F. Bauman to the State Supreme Court, along with Board of Public Utilities President Robert M. Hanna. For nearly a year, Judge Bauman and Mr. Hanna have been patiently waiting for State Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on their nominations. Yet, within only two months of his recent nomination to the New Jersey Supreme Court on August 12, 2013, a hearing is scheduled for October 17, 2013 for Camden County Superior Court Judge Faustino J. Fernandez-Vina. This unfair and inexcusable delay of hearings for Judge Bauman and Mr. Hanna stems from the standoff between Senate Democrats and Governor Christie over the composition of the State’s highest court.
