Seton Hall Law Professor Addresses Vacancies in NJ Supreme Court, on State of Affairs

Paula A. Franzese, Peter W. Rodino Professor of Law, Seton Hall University, sits down with Steve Adubato to address critical vacancies in our court, mandatory retirement, and how it further exacerbates the crisis.

Steve Adubato discusses the structure of the Supreme Court in New Jersey and the role of party affiliation in judicial issues. Professor Franzese explains “Perception is important, and the state supreme court, the U.S. Supreme Court has long been concerned with its perceptions. It needs to enjoy public confidence. It also needs to communicate to the public that it is a representative full of equal branches of government. The idea of a 4-3 split on a seven-member comprised court is an important tradition to preserve.”
