NJTV News with Mary Alice Williams

April 14, 2016

NJTV News Anchor Mary Alice Williams interviewed Peter G. Verniero about Governor Christie's latest New Jersey Supreme Court nominee.  According to NJTV, "The president and Senate are in a stalemate over filling a vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, but the standoff over a vacancy on the New Jersey State Supreme Court is winding down. The state Senate has refused to confirm four consecutive Christie nominees — all Republicans. Now he’s nominated a Democrat — Walter Timpone — and in so doing maintains the balance of power on the bench: three Republicans, three Democrats and one Independent. There’s a long history here and no one knows it better than Former State Supreme Court Justice Peter Verniero."
