"The New Jersey State Bar Association is extremely concerned regarding the issue of judicial vacancies, as our state courts are in crisis and have been so without any meaningful relief or assistance. It is unprecedented that we face in the not-too-distant future three vacancies on the Supreme Court, which is not what the framers of our Constitution ever intended. Given the dire consequences the Chief Justice shared today, we urge all parties to fill these vacancies with utmost urgency for the sake of the public and the legal system."
