Assembly committee weighs proposal to ease shortage of judges
For the first time since Bergen County's top judge threatened to suspend some civil trials and blamed a lack of judges to hear cases, an Assembly committee met to consider a key proposal to ease the high number of vacancies. Members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee voiced their support Thursday for calls to raise the mandatory retirement age for state judges to over 70. That age limit was set when the state Constitution was passed in 1947, and since then the mandatory retirement age has stayed the same while the life span of the average American has increased by 15 years from 64 to 79. Lawmakers faced two competing proposals on the agenda but took no action on either.
