TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie is reportedly
set to nominate a new justice for the New Jersey Supreme Court.
The Star-Ledger reports Christie will pick Lee Solomon, a Superior Court Judge in
Camden County who formerly served as a state and federal prosecutor and was
president of the state Board of Public Utilities.
The newspaper cited people familiar with the selection process. Christie administration officials told The Associated Press
they would not confirm the report, and Solomon did not respond to requests for
Solomon, a 57-year-old Haddonfield resident, also served in the state
Assembly for five years and was a Camden County freeholder.
The Republican governor has had difficulties filling seats on the state's top
court. Democratic lawmakers have blocked his last two nominees.
