8 Justices Ask N.J. Governor to Reconsider Reappointment

Eight retired Supreme Court justices have just released a statement asking Gov. Chris Christie to reconsider his decision not to reappoint Supreme Court Justice John Wallace.

“There is simply no question about the intent of the framers of our Constitution: reappointment would be denied only when a judge was deemed unfit, a standard that ensured the independence of the State’s judiciary under the Constitution,” the justices wrote. “That standard, embraced and followed for more than sixty years, is imbued with constitutional value.”
