Through an opinion editorial and television appearance this week, NJCJI’s President, Anthony Anastasio, called on New Jersey’s Governor and Senate to immediately address the state’s judicial vacancy crisis. State court judicial vacancies are now at a historic high. With criminal jury trials restarting in mid-June (after being suspended for over a year) and the Governor’s eviction and foreclosure moratorium eventually expiring, this deficiency in the number of judges could not come at a worse time. If this problem is not immediately prioritized and fixed, access to justice will be severely hampered for both individuals and businesses in our state.
