PR: Lonegan Urges Senators Not to Sign Off on Christie Supreme Court Picks Unless Nominees Reject Judicial Activism
BOGOTA, NJ Steve Lonegan, Americans for Prosperity State Director, today urged seven State Senators whose sign off is required for two State Supreme Court nominees to have hearings, not to give their approval unless the two nominees reject the concept of judicial activism that has been the Courts hallmark.
The seven state Senators include four from Bergen County who must sign off on Phillip Kwons nomination, two from Morris County who must sign off on Mayor Bruce Harriss nomination, and Senator Tom Kean (R-21) from Union County whose district includes Harriss home town of Chatham Borough.
No hearings can occur on the nominees until the Senators all sign off on the nominations. They are the first line of review here, and were urging them to take their responsibility seriously, he added.
