TRENTON – Senator John H. Adler, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today praised the nominations by Governor Cozine of Attorney General Stuart Rabner to become Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court and of First Assistant Attorney General Anne Milgram to succeed Rabner as the State’s top law enforcement officer.
“Stuart Rabner has shown himself to be a person of the highest intellect, integrity and decency,” said Senator Adler, D-Cherry Hill. “I have no doubt he (Rabner) will continue to serve New Jersey superbly as Chief Justice of our Supreme Court.”
As for Ms. Milgram, Senator Adler said he was impressed by how well she functioned under pressure during the troubled tenure of former Attorney General Zulima Farber.
“Anne Milgram has shown a steady hand and good judgment under fire from the outset of her tenure with the Department,” said Senator Adler. “I predict she will lead with the same competence and compassion as Attorney General.”
Senator Adler said he believed the two nominees could come before the Judiciary panel as early as June 18th.
