Chris Christie Still Sore Over NJ Supreme Court Nominees

Gov. Chris Christie says he still has an issue with the composition of the state Supreme Court now that two temporary justices have been assigned.

Chief Justice Stuart Rabner on Tuesday announced the temporary elevation of two appellate court jurists to the high court to compensate for two vacancies.

Christie said Wednesday the temporary placements aren’t ideal and wouldn’t have been necessary if the Democrat-led Senate had backed his nominees. The chamber’s Judiciary Committee rejected Christie’s two choices for the court: a gay black Republican and a Korean-American prosecutor.

The governor says he’s reviewing other nominees.

The feud between the Republican governor and the Legislature over appointments started when he chose not to reappoint the court’s only black jurist and Democrats refused to give his nominee a hearing.
