New Jersey Supreme Court controversy

    New York Times: “When Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey chose not to renominate Justice John Wallace Jr. to the State Supreme Court in May, it was a case of political overreach. The situation is now a national disgrace, thanks to the governor, the State Senate president, Stephen Sweeney, and Justice Roberto Rivera-Soto.”

    Paul Munshine writing in the Star Ledger: “Chris Christie’s got a tough choice here:
    Is he going to sit back and watch the Democrats self-immolate trying to impeach the sole Latin-American member of the state Supreme Court? Or is he going to let them off the hook by making a recess appointment?”

Seeking a path to restore order in the NJ Supreme Court

    at Seton Hall University, writing in the Star-Ledger: “Justice Rivera-Soto has not only objected to Chief Justice Rabner’s temporary assignment of Judge Edwin Stern to the court, but decided to abstain from voting in cases heard by an unconstitutionally constituted court. In response, Justice Barry Albin has accused Justice Rivera-Soto of putting himself above the law, claiming that the rule of law requires adherence to decisions made by a majority of the court. Senators have called for Justice Rivera-Soto to resign or be impeached.”

Robert Knight: Putting a gun to the public’s head in gov’t budgeting

    Robert Knight writing at Townhall: “So what did the city fathers of Camden do when faced with a $25.5 million budget deficit? On Thursday, they voted to lay off 200 police and firefighters along with 200 other city workers . . . It’s the typical liberal gambit: having loaded the public rolls with unionized government employees doing all sorts of non-essential things, the politicians go for the jugular to get the public’s attention.”

    Terrence McKeegan, J.D. writing at LifeNews: “‘An infant has no moral status because he is not self-aware,’ said Peter Singer, a professor of bioethics. Singer argued this point at an historic [conference] he co-organized at Princeton University last weekend, seeking new dialogue on the heated issue of abortion . . . The headline panel featured two heavyweight Australian philosophers – Singer, a bioethics professor at Princeton, and John Finnis, a professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of Oxford. The two debated the ‘Moral Status of the Fetus.’”
