NJ Court Blocks Swearing in of Assemblywoman-Elect

The New Jersey State Supreme Court has issued a last-minute order to block the swearing in of a woman elected to the state Assembly.

Republicans have challenged Gabriela Mosquera’s election, saying she did not meet the state constitutional requirement that a candidate live in the district for a year before being elected.

Mosquera, a Democrat, moved into the 4th District in southern New Jersey’s Gloucester and Camden Counties in December 2010.

The state Supreme Court order came Tuesday shortly before the swearing-in was scheduled. Justice Barry Albin dissented from the order.

The ruling in the quick-moving case came one day after an appeals court ruled she should be sworn in. That ruling set aside one from last week saying Mosquera should be denied the seat.
