Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Paul Sarlo has scheduled confirmation hearings for the renomination of Associate Justice Barry Albin to the New Jersey Supreme Court on June 15. Sarlo told Senators to expect to spend most of the day on the Albin confirmation. Republican Senators had asked for three days of hearings.
Albin was renominated by Gov. Jon Corzine last Friday. If the Senate votes to confirm, he can remain on the state’s top court until he reaches the mandatory retirement age of seventy in 2022.
