Gov. Christie Pressed to Add Minorities to Supreme Court

Governor Chris Christie is being urged to make the New Jersey Supreme Court more diverse. The Legislative Black Caucus sent a letter appealing to Christie to use his next appointment to nominate a minority. Christie will make two nominations to the court in March.

The current court is made up of five women and two men, all of whom are white. Blacks, Latinos and Asians make up more than 40 percent of the state’s population.

Christie did not reappoint the court’s only black justice and nominated a white woman to fill a vacancy when the court’s only Hispanic resigned. The NAACP and Latino Action Network have asked lawmakers to approve only nominees who increase the court’s diversity. Christie said in May he would be mindful of those concerns.
