Senate President Vows to Block New Jersey Court Nominee

The New Jersey Senate will block Gov. Christopher J. Christie’s appointment of a State Supreme Court justice by refusing to vote on whether to confirm the nominee, the Senate president said, escalating a partisan clash between the governor and the Legislature.

Mr. Christie, a Republican, broke with tradition and said he would not reappoint Justice John E. Wallace Jr., the court’s only black member, whose seven-year term is about to expire. Since the current system of reviewing justices after seven years was adopted in 1947, no justice had been refused reappointment.
