New Jersey Law Journal

June 18, 2007

The New Jersey Law Journal’s June 18, 2007 issue contains an article about James Zazzali’s eight month role as head of New Jersey’s court system which recently ended due to a mandatory retirement policy. According to the article, “[Peter] Verniero, who left the Court in 2004, says Zazzali ‘has been extraordinary in a short period of time.’ Verniero says ‘even when I didn’t always agree with the outcome, I certainly agreed with the manner in which he decided cases.’ Verniero, now with Newark’s Sills Cummis Epstein & Gross, notes that Zazzali’s clearly written opinions were ‘the hallmark of an outstanding judge.’”
