TRENTON, NJ (STL.News) “Rachel Wainer Apter is a terrific choice by Governor Murphy for the New Jersey Supreme Court,” said Senator Nilsa Cruz-Perez. “She has not shied away from any fight, whether it is protecting the rights of undocumented New Jerseyans to advocating for the rights of women. I am happy to see her nominated and look forward to her service on the Court.”
“Mrs. Wainer Apter’s impressive legal background and personal dedication to ensuring all people receive equal treatment and protection under the law make her a truly inspiring choice to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court,” said Senator Joseph Lagana. “The merit of her appointment is clear when you consider her extensive appellate experience, having appeared and argued cases in multiple states. And, of course, she has learned much so from the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg through a coveted U.S. Supreme Court clerkship. My support was ultimately cemented after discussing at great length with her the thoughtful and reasoned approach she would have to serving on New Jersey’s highest court and seeing the passion she has for defending civil rights and upholding the rule of law.”
“I am pleased by Governor Murphy’s nomination of Rachel Wainer Apter to the New Jersey Supreme Court,” said Senator Joseph Vitale.
