WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Bob Menendez (both D-N.J.) applauded the bipartisan vote to advance through the Senate Judiciary Committee the nominations of Michael Farbiarz and Judge Robert Kirsch to serve on the U.S. District Court of New Jersey. Booker is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Michael Farbiarz and Judge Robert Kirsch are two highly qualified jurists who will bring years of legal experience to the federal bench. The people of New Jersey will be well-served by their steadfast commitment to justice, law, and public service,” said Senator Booker. “I am proud to support these judicial nominees who represent the best of our state and I look forward to their swift confirmations by the full Senate.”

“Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the nominations of Judge Robert Kirsch and Michael E. Farbiarz – two remarkable, dedicated, and exceptionally qualified individuals to serve on the U.S. District Court of New Jersey,” said Senator Menendez. “With their commitment to justice and service, their fierce values and deep understanding of the rule of law, I’m confident that when confirmed by the full Senate, they will serve the people of New Jersey with the highest level of integrity and honor.”

Senator Booker has served on the Senate Judiciary Committee since 2018. He has been a leader in the Senate on criminal justice and policing reform since he was first elected in 2013. Booker has introduced numerous criminal justice reform proposals, including: the Fair Chance Act, the CARERS Act, the MERCY Act, the Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act, the Second Look Act, the Justice in Policing Act, and the EQUAL Act. He was also a key architect of the most sweeping overhaul of the criminal justice system in decades, the First Step Act, which was signed into law in 2018.
