Corzine’s judicial appointments include some political names from both parties

A few noteworthy Superior Court appointments made by Gov. Jon Corzine last week: Margaret Foti, who succeeded Peter Verniero as Chief Counsel to Gov. Christine Todd Whitman; Robert Gilson, once a genuine rainmaker at Riker, Danzig, Scherer, Hyland and Perretti and, since 2006, the Law Division Director at the state Attorney General's office; Joseph Paone, an administrative law judge and former GOP candidate for Middlesex County Freeholder; and Lawrence Jones, who along with his wife, Joni Jones, raised the level of awareness for the developmentally disabled as Democratic State Assembly candidates in the tenth district in 2005. Corzine also named Kelly Kirk, a former Bergen GOP Freeholder candidate, to serve as an administrative law judge.
