Judge in hot water with Corzine

Superior Court Judge James Morley’s recent courtroom comments have gotten in trouble with Gov. Jon Corzine, who said he’ll conduct a careful review before deciding if the Burlington County Judge should be reappointed to a tenured term.

“The Governor does not condone any insensitive or inappropriate statements, is troubled by what he read, and this is something that will obviously be part of the thorough review facing judges who come up for appointment or reappointment,” said Rob Corrales, a spokesman for Corzine.

Morley is unlikely to be reappointed, sources say.
